Research Interests

Professor Strang’s primary research interests focus on the development, use, and pedagogical implications of computerized business simulations. His two computerized business simulations DECIDE and DECIDE P/OM have been used by schools of business at major universities throughout the United States for almost two decades. In addition to the simulations he has written numerous scholarly articles relating to his research interests. His research has been published by The Journal for the American Institute for Decision Sciences, Canadian Journal of Agricultural Economics, Journal of Northeastern Agricultural Economics Council, Simulation and Games, and Association of Business Simulations and Experiential Learning.
