In adult education the important role, according to the David Kolb’s model, plays appeal to students’ previous experience and practical approach. Decision-making simulation games are effectively used to implement the idea of experiential learning in areas related to business. These games, belonging to the group called serious games, allow players to simulate practical actions in conditions close to reality.

Postgraduate studies are intended for practitioners of logistics as a short and intense form of training during weekends. Games are one of practical elements used in these studies.
