Traders at Macquarie University

International Trading Game

As part of the Master of International Business program the Faculty has created a multiplayer online game introducing topics such as supply and demand, trading, and tariffs. As players represent a country, they are given:

  1. Insights into how gamification works and the interactive learning experience it provides,
  2. Experience on almost authentic emotions triggered by inequalities in world trade, such as greed, frustration, powerlessness, desire to escape poverty, amongst others.

The goal of the game is to encourage communication and discussions amongst students in class and beyond. The simulation shows how international trade works and how trade influences the development of a country.
