Abstract:     
This document describes how interactive market simulations are used to teach finance in the Dynamic Markets course at Harvard Business School. The course is organized around hands-on application in a wide variety of capital market settings with the goal of producing experts in financial decision-making. The essential aspects of this pedagogy are dynamic decision settings, a strong reliance on competitive markets, and derivation of core concepts through active student decision-making.
