Recent research in higher education suggests that trading-related simulations add value to students’ learning experience and students can learning from their mistakes in an unthreatening simulated real world environment. There is also a consensus in research that group work has the potential to improve student engagement, performance, marks and retention. Although finance-related simulations have been applied by a rapidly growing number of educators in classes, not many of them have offered the opportunity of cooperative learning. Drawing on works from organizational studies we intend to assess whether student groups with higher trust would perform better in their trading simulation. We explore how students group structure affects group performance, which requires facilitators to take a more active role in managing student groups.
