Dealing Room

Dealing Room is simpler in design and functionality than Global Investor and has been created as an entry point to developing the skills and knowledge associated with the world of business and finance. 

The game delivers the two elements of financial markets trading - researching and investing - in one simulated game environment. 

Students, working in pairs, invest in 9 companies and the US dollar based on information they get from TV and radio news and from a news website integrated into the simulation. 

Prices are affected not only by the information in the news but also by what players do, making for a genuinely interactive experience. The game is available in English, French and Spanish.
