ProBanker Simulations is a pioneer in producing simulation software for the classroom with nearly 30 years of experience.
Our flagship simulation teaches the core principles and analytical tools for the management of financial institutions. It provides a realistic environment to apply the various instruments and strategies for effective decision making in managing financial institutions.
The ProBanker software provides a "hands on" management experience to teach the management of financial institutions that is more realistic than any problem set or case study. A 150-page Administrator Manual fully explains the simulation model, which is based on sound economic concepts.
Additional features include student-tested assignments that apply and reinforce financial tools taught in the classroom. You can freely customize ProBanker events to illustrate particular points, or to apply particular tools learned in class.
ProBanker provides an ideal game to teach individuals working in financial institutions, from mid-level management to executive officers.
As I just told my wife, comparing the last simulation game I used with this one is like comparing a Volkswagen Beetle with a Rolls Royce.- Prof. M.
There is an 11-chapter administrator's manual, describing all economic aspects of the simulation in full detail. It also provides sample assignments and suggested simulation scenarios.
ProBanker operates in two modes, competitive and autosim. Competitive mode has the pedagogical benefits of a shared exercise with a little rivalry mixed in to motivate the players. Autosim has the benefits of allowing players to practice and experiment freely, without the constraints of competitive play.
With ProBanker, there is no tedious paperwork for the administrator. Players enter their decisions directly into the ProBanker database using their web browser. Similarly, their simulation reports can be viewed online, or downloaded to a local machine. The admin never needs to intervene in the clerical work, Moreover, players can access their game any time, from any web browser.
All significant aspects of the simulation, including the macroeconomic environment and yield curve dynamics, balance sheet structure, capital regulations, etc. are freely adjustable. The administrator's manual even offers suggested scenarios to emphasize particular pedagogical issues.
The simulation is designed to be set up and played quickly. Prior games can be copied effortlessly for repeat classes. Players pay online by credit card without burdening the administrator. Site license available. Players pay online by credit card, without burdening the administrator. Site licensing is still available for those who prefer it, though.
