Futurality is a business simulation that enables the students to learn how to start and run a small or mid-size company. It combines the Futural ERP system and a virtual business environment.
The business environment consists of service providers, wholesalers, customers, authorities and a bank. The learners start fictional companies and trade with other student and administrator-run companies and manage their own business. The game-like business environment is suitable for example to higher education and it has been piloted with the Tampere technical university.
