Any learning process is successful when students enjoy learning rather than considering learning as painful. Management games facilitates students in involve voluntarily in actives of business practices.
Knowledge assimilated is best assessed when students are able to express and exhibit the talent when presented in the right form and as required by companies and corporate. Hence presentation skills give student to rehearse the knowledge, lessons learnt in the classroom.
