New Free Offering for Teaching

An innovative gaming platform by HEC Montréal and SAP


Dear Academic Board APJC,

The World Economic Forum has recognized analytical thinking as the most essential skill sought by companies. Make your students future ready and equip them with a competitive advantage in the job market by bringing Business Builders into your classroom.
世界經濟論壇將分析思維視為企業尋求的最基本技能。透過將Business Builders帶入您的課堂,讓您的學生為未來做好準備,並讓他們在就業市場上獲得競爭優勢。

Business Builders is developed by HEC Montréal in strong collaboration with SAP.  It will offer gamified learning experiences that teach students to navigate large datasets and utilize visualization techniques to uncover meaningful insights. Business Builders promotes proficiency in data storytelling so students can communicate their findings effectively, emphasizing the importance of choosing appropriate visualizations for insight generation. It aims to develop the critical thinking and decision-making skills needed for success in the modern business landscape while developing in-demand SAP Analytics Cloud skills.

Business Builders 由 HEC Montréal 與 SAP 密切合作開發。 它將提供遊戲化的學習體驗,教導學生瀏覽大型資料集並利用視覺化技術來發現有意義的見解。 Business Builders 提高了講數據故事的熟練程度,以便學生能夠有效地傳達他們的發現,強調選擇適當的可視化以產生洞察力的重要性。它旨在培養在現代商業環境中取得成功所需的批判性思維和決策技能,同時培養急需的 SAP Analytics Cloud 技能。

Business Builders is designed by faculty for faculty, ensuring its use will enhance classroom learning and help you to connect your curricula to some of today’s most pressing business issues.  Datasets can offer new insights each semester, so games remain relevant and engaging over time. The platform will welcome learners at all levels of familiarity with SAP, including those with no prior knowledge of data science and programming. It is free of charge for educators and your students to play.

Business Builders 由教師為教師設計,確保其使用能夠增強課堂學習,並幫助您將課程與當今一些最緊迫的商業問題聯繫起來。 數據集每個學期都可以提供新的見解,因此遊戲隨著時間的推移保持相關性和吸引力。該平台歡迎 SAP 熟悉程度各個層級的學習者,包括那些沒有數據科學和程式設計知識的學習者。教育工作者和您的學生可以免費玩。

Students will be able to engage in three distinct scenarios, each designed to challenge them in specific areas of business management:

  • The Sustainability Scenario compels students to evaluate sustainable business practices based on the Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) methodology.
  • The Supply Chain Resilience Scenario challenges students to explore logistical complexities when a company’s transportation network is disrupted.
  • The International Business Expansion Scenario requires students to conduct market analysis to identify the optimal foreign market and tailor products for successful global growth.

Further scenarios will be explored in the future.
