We interviewed experienced project management teachers to better understand benefits and challenges of game-based learning (GBL) method in project management higher education context. We found out that GBL activates, inspires and motivates both learners and instructors. GBL enables practicing project management skills in simulative and risk-free environment. The perceived challenges of GBL for students manifest as increased cognitive load and stress. Ensuring pedagogical suitability and teachers’ competence building will enable successful use of GBL in project management education.
