In this chapter, we present the theoretical under- pinnings of and conditions for learning through experiences gained in immersive learning sim- ulations (or simply gaming ) and show some examples of authentic learning experiences for business professionals. We argue that re- cent developments in the theory of knowledge acquisition coupled with changes in the ed- ucational landscape (e.g., the proliferation of online courses and programs) present an unri- valled and so far mostly unexploited opportunity for serious games. The examples presented are from using Managerial Enterprise Resource Plan- ning ( MERP ) in a variety of MBA and corporate business training programs. Related examples of other virtual learning environments are also included.
