In this research, we analyize learning method of the finance theory about the investment project selection and capital structure determination using the business game technique. As a result of analysis, the participant understood the investment project selection method and interesting phenomena -an understanding progresses about the method of determining the capital structure which raises capital stock value -were seen. These results show the effectiveness of the business game technique to study of finance theory.
