Developing the business and transferable skills of students is a challenge in the higher education environment. The issue is how to simulate a business environment to give students a realistic experience. If it is possible to give a realistic experience, the next challenge is what are the best ways to measure if the students have actually developed their skills? This paper is about introducing a practice by creating an environment for students to develop their transferable and business skills using a computer simulated environment. The research aspect of this paper is about finding or not finding empirical evidence of students’ development of these skills. Finally this research also evaluates the course from students’ point of views based on their experience. The research uses both qualitative and quantitative methods to evaluate students’ development of these skills and their experience of the module.
