Oklahoma Baptist University business students recently placed among the nation’s best in Capstone Simulation, an online business simulation project.
The simulation involved an array of aspects of running a company. Students worked together to make decisions about their company, primarily from a financial perspective.
OBU’s team ranked 67th out of 1,300 business school undergrad teams. The teams included students from nationally recognized business schools at institutions including the University of Pennsylvania, Baylor University, Penn State University and Florida State University.
OBU’s team consisted of senior business majors Taylor Prince, Erin Zahrt, Emily Reiser, Julie Jantz, Jamie Wright, and Michelle Prenzlow.
“During the simulation our team had to draw upon knowledge we have gained thus far in our business classes,” said Emily Reiser, a finance major from Pryor, Okla. “It helped us understand the value of teamwork.”
“I’m extremely proud of the effort put forth by our students, and the results they have garnered” said Dr. Richard Rudebock, dean of the school of business.
