Capstone Consulting Project

Full-Time MBA students apply the knowledge and skills they’ve learned in the classroom to help an actual client during the Business Consulting Project. This three-hour credit course is scheduled during the student’s final semester.

Students work in teams to help solve real-world business problems for clients, which include Fortune 500 companies, small start-up businesses, and non-profit organizations.
