Abstract : Through a survey of 89 collegiate schools of business, 1974 usage of management gaming in both undergraduate and graduate curriculums was determined and compared to the results of a similar survey of 107 schools of business in 1962. The results of the 1974 survey provided conclusive evidence that in the years following 1962, management gaming has gained increased acceptance and use as an educational technique. This increase in acceptance and use of management gaming from 1962 to 1974 was brought to light by two primary findings of this comparative study. (Modified author abstract)
