    This article examines the role of a management simulator in teaching an agribusiness management course. The use of the simulator is described and the critical issue of the simulator's correspondence with management course content is discussed. A set of requirements for the realization of the maximum net benefits of using a simulator is presented for consideration. The conclusion is that the costs and benefits are neither global nor explicit and should be carefully and subjectively estimated before a decision is made on whether to incorporate a simulation game into an agribusiness management course.
