    Teaching management to students with limited managerial experience presents particular challenges. Simulations (both human and computer-based) are useful devices for promoting experiential learning and the development of a requisite experiential framework which are often lacking in these students. To date, the link between theory on simulations, management and education has been limited. This paper reviews the literature on the use of simulations in management education. One particular educational theory, anchored instruction is proposed as a learning design with the potential to serve as the foundational theoretical framework for research into the use of simulations for management education.
