The Capstone Consulting Experience is the culmination of a MBA student's education put into practice to address an organization’s strategic or operational issues. Students combine work experience and knowledge from their practical business education to develop solutions for their client firms.
The Capstone Consulting Experience provides a cost-effective solution for corporations, nonprofits, and governments that lack the time, budgets, or human resources to address specific strategic initiatives. Consulting projects are carried out by teams of students working under the supervision of a professor with extensive consulting and project management experience.
The Capstone Consulting Experience has been a valuable resource for hundreds of organizations, providing actionable solutions to business problems or opportunities for growth.
