Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The purpose of the study was to analyze, through a quasi-experimental approach, the influence of a board game in the learning of economics for non-economist university students. Surveys were applied and information was collected on the performance of the students from the management career at the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru during the first semester of 2019. The students were divided into two groups: an experimental group, which used the game, and a control group, which maintained conventional academic activities.
