How it works: For Students

The Industry Capstone Program is a graduation requirement for all MBA/AMBA students, but all graduate students in the School of Business are welcome to apply and participate in this opportunity. Our program is tied to the three-credit course, MGT 809: Industry Capstone Program and is typically offered in the fall, spring, and summer semesters. Students who are interested in participating in MGT 809 must first take/pass the pre-requisite course, MGT 808: Fundamentals of Consulting. MGT 808 is a zero-credit course and is typically offered in the fall and spring semesters.

Interested students, in MGT 809, must first apply for a specific project before registering. Our application process provides students with the opportunity to view current project descriptions, indicate projects of interest, and submit a copy of their resume with their application. Students are then matched to a project for the coming semester, and our team provides them with registration and onboarding materials. Applications are typically sent out 4-6 weeks prior to the start of each term that the course is offered, from the [email protected] account.
