Every subject matter becomes more interesting when it is being explained in a game format. Thus, by taking this approach to get the startups to be more keen on this topic is indeed the way to go. During the initial stage, it obviously might still be tough in getting their attention. However, once they know how things actually can get interesting to learn the ropes of supply chain, they are bound to get glued to the topic. It is all about luring them in before making them coming back for more.

Yes its true that college students know very little about supply chain management/logistics wise. However, this type of career needs a lot of hands on experience as well as great deal of promotion. Companies need to encourge existing employees with promotion/ education and also attract young employees with intereship to provide hands on experience.

Hospice,

Yes but the Game also will need a great deal of Promotion and Encouragment as well.

Else it will tend to falter.

Himanshu,

While I agree that was a serious issue a few years back;with today's Graduates its a totally different story.

Most Grads no longer see finance/Management as a Get Rich Quick career(for obvious reasons if you have seen the Job Losses there it would'nt be so surprising).

Plus,the Really terrible Work-Culture,Long-Hours and lack of Creative Fulfilment[How many Rocket Scientists do you really need to run a Hedge Fund)???

Not just that thanks to the Mess caused by Global Central Banks in the name of "Stability";avenues to make Money in the Markets have gone down tremendously.

Its obvious if such markets no longer exist there is no real need for more employees there as well.

I have seen feed-back effects on Lower MBA Univerisities as well[A Good number are either Shutting Shop Globally or shifting to alternative courses].

@Himanshugupta: Yes if you can get into the minds and hearts of the next generation via games then it's a big achievement. There are certain things which have been developed in the form of games so it has already started. Only need to push it through the process

I agree that money cannot be the solution to all the problems. However, we often see that even STEM graduates steer towards finance/management roles because of good growth and opportunities.

Games are good way to attracy young generation towards STEM but without proper motivation in the school the experiment cannot be successful. I think the whole point of the game is to invoke curiosity and then hope that that will lead youngsters to drive towards STEM carrer.

@tech4people: If the game is interactive and fun, I think kids will get interested. For instance, my kids like playing games that involve the whole food production process.

@Rich, I am not a cartoon enthusiast, but if that will help pass the message across, why not? What characters do you think the "gang" will be comprised of?
