The DMS Pandemic Simulation

Could your students handle the next pandemic? In this time-sensitive simulation, players hone skills in crisis management, multi-party negotiation, and communication while managing the impact of a deadly disease. To succeed, they'll need to balance economic, budgetary, political, and public health outcomes, working with the other teams to devise a regional response. Each team plays as the government of one of four distinct countries, and each player takes on the responsibilities of a cabinet minister's policy portfolio. Games can be 15, 30, 60, or 90 minutes long, with several difficulty levels for replayability. End-of-game data reports provide great opportunities for discussion, review, and improvement. Requires at least 4 players; if you'd like to run an event for over 100, contact us at sims.admin@dmsinetwork.com.

NASPAA has been working with DMS Academy to revamp the Pandemic Simulation with new features, content, and functionality to reflect NASPAA's objectives from its new Strategic Plan and DEIJA Action Plan. This simulation was used during the 2018 and 2021 NASPAA Student Simulation Competition.
