Faculty Simulation Lab: CapsimInbox

Welcome to GBSN Beyond’s first faculty simulation lab in partnership with CapsimInbox, where you will bring your work to life!

In the theme of “Beyond,” GBSN and Capsim are partnering to bring faculty an interactive and creative experience that takes knowledge Beyond the Classroom. As participants, you will have the opportunity to form teams and utilize your own research, case studies, experiences, and more to develop your own 45-60 minute CapsimInbox scenario, where students are tested on skills of your choosing. In our virtual global environment, now is the time to bring regional and culturally relevant experiences to life.

CapsimInbox is a microsimulation platform that simulates an email environment where learners face real-world scenarios. As faculty participants, you will use current data, research, cases, etc., to develop into the CapsimInbox simulation format and provide that information in the application concept. We are looking for creative and innovative geographic locations, cultures, scenarios, and skill sets not usually found in typical curricula.

The winning faculty team will be offered a cash prize, along with recognition as a CapsimInbox author and royalty rights. This opportunity allows for portfolio expansion beyond the normal written studies and a personal touch in the new wave of virtual experiential learning.

What is CapsimInbox?

The easy and experiential way to engage and develop today’s learners.

60% of employers don’t believe that recent graduates are well-prepared for their jobs. CapsimInbox prepares learners to effectively apply the knowledge they’ve gained to real-world situations. Individuals are immersed in a role at a fictitious company and must choose what they believe are the best responses to various real-world scenarios. Responses indicate proficiency levels on the skills being measured, such as communicating, prioritizing, managing talent, generating solutions and many more.

Simulation Prompt

As faculty member participants, you are to take current data, research, cases, etc., that you would like to see in CapsimInbox simulation format and provide that information in the application concept. We are looking for creative and innovative geographic locations, cultures, scenarios, and skill sets not usually found in typical curricula.

Ex: You are an Indian manager of an Ethiopian garment factory and are running into cultural barriers for process understanding.

We are looking for creative and innovative geographic locations, cultures, scenarios, and skill sets not usually found in typical curricula.

Prize Information

The winning faculty team will be offered a 5,000 USD cash prize, as well as recognition as a CapsimInbox author with the opportunity to bring the simulation to market and earn royalties! Every participating team will be offered the opportunity to work with Capsim and bring their version to market with the potential to earn royalties.

Student Competition: The HUMLOG Challenge

Welcome to GBSN Beyond’s inaugural Student Competition in partnership with Hanken School of Economics’ Humanitarian Logistics and Supply Chain Research Institute (HUMLOG Institute).

Taking you Beyond Graduation, this is the first competition of its kind, involving both a globally recognized network and a leading institution in humanitarian logistics.

GBSN and the HUMLOG Institute have worked together to bring students an interdisciplinary, team-oriented, interactive digital competition experience, that drives solution development in their local communities. We are moving beyond the traditional competition and allowing for absolute creativity and exploration for sustainable humanitarian solutions. Throughout the month of October, teams will work through checkpoints. The Student Track will also offer teams access to professional development workshops and webinars focused on careers and learning. First place offers a cash prize to aid implementation!

We hope you, as participants, are inspired and implement much-needed change in your local communities.

Innovative Solutions for 
Supply Sourcing and/or Delivery

Your task is to identify a systematic supply chain problem within your community and suggest an innovative solution that would help alleviate medical and/or food supply chain disruptions during the current COVID-19 pandemic or other regional issue. The focus can be on any aspect of the supply chain, though we specifically encourage material procurement and/or delivery.  We encourage you to think out of the box, engage local participants, and record local perspectives.

Example: Your town in South Africa is lacking Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), a solution your team could come up with is utilizing your university’s 3-D printer to create recyclable PPE for the local clinics.

Prize Information

The winning team will be offered a 5,000 USD prize to be used towards their continuing education!

Top FIVE teams will be offered a one hour professional mentoring session from one of our judges!

*This opportunity will be catered to the best times of the team and judge and can be used within a year post-event

In partnership with Localized, all participating teams will have access to participate in employment development opportunities such as a two-day virtual career fair. Students will have the opportunity to meet and mingle with potential employers across various industries from across the globe. All teams will have the opportunity to showcase their work in a Virtual Presentation Hall. This opportunity allows for networking, idea development, and unique presentations that can both spark interest and create investment in the ideas.

This also an incredible opportunity to add your CV experience!

Team Formation & Sign-Up

About Peru

Peru is a country in western South America, bordered by the countries Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Ecuador as well as by the Pacific Ocean in the West. Due to its extreme biodiversity the habitats range from the Andes mountains to the arid plains of the Pacific coastal region to the tropical Amazon rainforest in the east.

The official language is Spanish, although different native languages, such as Quechua are spoken among many Peruvians. Peru was colonized in the 16th century by the Spanish Empire until it claimed and secured independence in 1824.

The currency is the ‘Peruvian sol’ (PEN) which is the Spanish word for ‘sun’. It is subdivided into 100 céntimos (‘cents’). One US dollar equals approximately 3.22 PEN (January 2018).

Known for its ancient cultures and oldest traces of civilizations in the Americas, the citadel of Machu Picchu is one of the most popular tourist destination in Peru. It belongs to the 7 new World Wonders and is best accessible by taking the Inca Rail with spectacular views of the Sacred Valley’s countryside.

Lima, the capital of Peru, also known as the City of Kings offers an insight into the old colonial history of the country and its way to independence. Other famous places in Peru include the city of Cusco, the Amazon jungle and the Rainbow mountains called Vinicuna.

Leveraging International Partnerships
Some business schools have developed partnership models for client-based projects as a means of including experiential learning as a core part of their business curriculum. The benefits to those involved can be powerful. Participating companies and organizations benefit from student teams that bring both outside perspectives and local expertise to address a timely and relevant business challenge. Students develop valuable professional skills from the rich cross-cultural learning opportunity of working both virtually and face-to-face with peers from partner institutions. Participating schools strengthen existing relationships as they learn from and with one another about what it takes to plan and execute effective client-based projects within a business curriculum. In this session, schools who have experience with partnership models will share insights and lessons learned about how to partner most effectively to deliver value to partner organizations and maximize student learning.
