In 2018, 29 students will be graduating from the University of Northwestern Ohio with Business Administration degrees but before they put on the cap and gown they need to make it through one final test.

The students wrapped up their undergraduate careers with the Capstone Presentation. This year's project simulated the running of an airline company, requiring them to make decisions and navigate through the kinds of twists and setbacks they could see in their future careers.

"Life is unexpected, life is unexplained, but life is very real," says Asst. Prof. of Business Administration Calvin Lindo. "In their business careers they're going to find things that come up that they haven't thought of or haven't planned for."

The project pulled lessons from what the students have been learning in their years at UNOH, forcing them to look at all the different angles of running a business, at the same time.

"I feel like it really encompassed my four years at UNOH," says student Lauren Crooks. "It really dipped our toes into a lot of different aspects for the business world; finance, marketing, all the big basics to really run a company."

The simulation also underlined the importance of maintaining professionalism throughout every step of the process and working together as a team, because successful business is always done with and through others.
