Professor Rabalais recently sent a message of kudos to the business faculty and the liberal art support at OLHCC for providing the strong background that has allowed his students to be so successful in their BUS414 capstone course.Using The Business Strategy Game, an online exercise, teams compete at the task of running an athletic footwear company in a global marketplace. Students apply the concepts learned in previous business courses in an effort to run a competitive yet profitable company. Mr. Rabalais reports that students love the program and constantly stop him to say how much fun they are having with it.
