The Universities World Rankings computer simulator was developed by the Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO together with a team of developers specialising in computer simulations at simulizator.com.
In the Universities World Rankings simulator, participants take on the role of a rector in major Russian universities. They have to transform the key processes at their university in order to be ranked in the top 100 universities globally. The in-game rating consists of five groups of statistical indicators that reflect key aspects of the global competitiveness of a university. The winner is the team that ranks highest.
The simulator is designed for university staff (unit managers, their deputies, and front-line employees). It might also be interesting and useful for project teams at universities involved in transformational processes inside their educational institutions.
Players run a virtual university, with simulations of all the main activities of a university and the links between these activities. Success in the simulation is based on managerial decision-making, which requires participants to get a sense of the big picture of their university's activity.
Participants must make decisions on university activities such as: science and innovation, educational policy, infrastructure and HR management, work with partner universities, marketing, international activity, management systems, finance, etc.
facets of management
The participants will also practise their management skills: teamwork, ability to analyse a situation fast and take decisions given limited time and resources, and ability to respond to unexpected external situations.
The computer simulation is accompanied by information materials and instructions:
