PLATA BOGOYA, JAIME ANTONIO; MORALES RUBIANO, MARÍA EUGENIA and ARIAS CANTE, MAYRA ALEJANDRA. IMPACT OF MANAGERIAL GAMES IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION PROGRAMS AS A PEDAGOGIC TOOL. Rev.fac.cienc.econ. [online]. 2009, vol.17, n.1, pp. 77-94. ISSN 0121-6805.
This article has the object to present an analysis about the importance of managerial games as a pedagogic tool in some business administration programs in Bogotá D.C. In order to achieve this, a bibliographic review of works developed about managerial games was made, both in international and national scopes, as well as a field work in five universities of Bogotá where information about undergraduate students' perception on application and support of managerial games to their formation process was obtained. The research showed interesting results, on one hand, positive perceptions of students about the attraction of managerial games as a learning tool because of the benefits that it presents; on the other hand, the universities show low interest to this pedagogic tool. This is evidenced in low investment of physical, human and economic resources for development and application of these games; showing competitive disadvantages in front of students of administrative sciences abroad.
Keywords : Managerial games; simulation; pedagogic tool; administrative sciences.
