Abstract: This paper describes experiences in teaching of a Modelling and simulation course at the Faculty of Organizational Sciences. The course consists of continuous simulation based on System Dynamics (SD) and discrete event simulation (DES). When enrolling the course the students have already taken courses of Mathematics, Statistics, Systems Theory, as well as Organization and Economics. The final grade of the course is derived from the student’s project and written exam. Attendance at lectures is not obligatory; only the practical exercises are. In this paper, we will discuss the methods of teaching SD by using the classical approach of teaching, and by the application of a business simulator. Therefore, we have developed the simulation model in order to explicate the usefulness of the simulation in solving management problems. Students took part in the experiment with the simulation model; the obtained results were analyzed afterward in the students’ projects. After the experiment, stude nts had to complete a questionnaire on their opinion of the course. The results show that students taking the course of Modelling and Simulation thought that application of the simulation model contribute to a better problem understanding, faster problem solving and greater confidence of participants.
