CSBS Network Educators CSBS Network Firms


Welcome to the Center for Simulated Business Services (CSBS) at Mercer County Community College. CSBS supports the implementation of the International Business Practice Firm (IBPF) concept at colleges and high schools in the U.S. The IBPF is a simulated business that mirrors the real world. It is a "company" set up by students with the assistance of a teacher/facilitator. In an authentic office setting, linked by technology, the student/employee engages in simulated business transactions with other firms both domestically and internationally.
