Knowledge Matters is the leader in virtual experiential learning providing visually immersive business simulations for high schools, colleges, and universities.
Virtual Business simulations support a variety of career and technical education (CTE) topics and classes, including Personal Finance and Accounting for high school, and puts students in the driver’s seat to make important business and financial decisions.
Due to the risk-free virtual environment, students can see the impact of those decisions immediately in a video game-like setting, learn at their own pace, and are further engaged as they explore and analyze concepts learned in class.
The Virtual Business Personal Finance simulation is the most popular personal finance and financial literacy curriculum used by teachers to engage digitally native students. This interactive simulation teaches key financial issues that impact students in the present and help set them up for success in their lives after graduation. Topics included in the simulation range from money management, credit, and paying taxes, to investing, paying rent, purchasing a car, and more.
In Virtual Business Accounting, students learn the fundamentals of accounting from financial statements to forensic accounting, and are motivated to achieve positive financial outcomes as they manage their own simulated business.
All of the nine Virtual Business Simulations were designed with input from subject matter experts and feature real life business examples to help students form connections between the foundations learned in school, and how they might be applied in their world outside of the classroom.
