Cranfield MBA Crisis Simulation Module


I've recently discovered that Cranfield offers a crisis simulation exercise as part of the MBA. The exercise is said to be part of Cranfield's Organisational Behaviour and Personal and Professional Development courses. It places groups of students in front of a panel of real-life journalists in a press conference, to discuss a fictitious business problem, and gives students awareness and understanding of how to handle the media in a crisis situation. Any one ever been in it?

Yes, I did it a couple of weeks ago. I suspect few if any other MBA courses include such an element, and I think it is good.

Other specialised courses do this, for example the Air Transport Management MSc at City University (or indeed the Cranfield course). I have heard it is very immersive and a great real time learning exercise.

I recently attended an MBA module in which the issue of electoral risk was being considered in a similar immersive exercise with groups of students playing partisans or stakeholders. We had one shy,quiet guy that turned into Fidel Castro when given his chance to speak: rousing the masses :-) Great fun.

Ha! Where was this?

Interestingly, crisis simulation is actually well covered in the executive education field. I know that both Durham and Case/Weatherhead have short courses in this area:
