General Economics for Managers (GEM)


At Tuck, many first-year MBA students struggle when learning complex economic concepts such as trade and monetary policy, especially in the Core Course “Global Economics for Managers” (GEM). Although traditional study methods exist, they can be ineffective and dull. The GEM interactive game aims to incorporate the economic concepts taught in class in an interactive electronic game format.

We created a mobile application for Android and iOS, with two games focused on trade and monetary policy, as well as a flash card component for students to review key ideas.
