Abstract: Small and medium size enterprises are an important and growing part of the economy. They lack an adequately skilled workforce. Higher education is claimed to provide students with theoretical knowledge rather than skills. Enterprise resource systems, business simulation games and the practice enterprise model are all practical, experiential learning environments. Each of them solves different learning challenges but does not provide a comprehensive learning environment. This paper presents a simulated learning environment that merges the three environments together, allowing students to learn the daily operations of SMEs in a practice-focused manner. In addition, the instructor can create learning situations appropriate for the learning objectives at hand. The paper describes experiences of the first pilot from both the student and the teacher perspective. An initial evaluation shows positive learning outcomes on the long-term memorizing of declarative knowledge among the low and aver age students. (More)
