Abstract: The Oklahoma Agricultural Bank Simulation Game (Ag Bank Sim) is a software based, experiential learning tool through which participants historically have learned key financial, economic, and banking lessons. The game offers a “real world” experience in which management decisions affect institutions interacting in a geographic market, enhancing understanding of the complex, competitive environment within which commercial banks operate. A new Internet version of the game has been developed, allowing participants to play Ag Bank Sim in a virtual environment. This poster highlights features of the game and reports results of pre and post tests of undergraduate students playing the game at Louisiana State University and Oklahoma State University in the spring 2010 semester. Through playing Ag Bank Sim, participants improved understanding of key concepts. The Internet environment enhanced both the student and instructor experience.
