Abstract: One of the challenges in leadership development is the ability to create opportunities for students to apply skills that have been learned in the classroom. The traditional approach to leadership development includes cases and simulations, but these approaches are often not conducive to developing “perspective taking” and empathy which are key in developing leadership skills. Virtual Reality provides an opportunity to create virtual scenarios that recreate “real-life” situations where global leadership skills can be put into practice. This design innovation paper describes the elements considered in the development of a simulation focusing on global leadership skills and using a novel approach to Virtual Reality in the context of higher education. This simulation aims to address the gap in action learning for leadership skills development. This document is intended to provide a novel approach of using Virtual Reality in business education.
