Students

In The Capstone Consulting Experience, university students will examine an organization's processes and provide actionable, in-depth recommendations for necessary improvements.

Dallas MBa Capstone Class

Under the guidance of a faculty member, each student participates on a team that is assigned to work with a real organization on a 12-week comprehensive project.

Each team works together to provide actionable recommendations, including a proposal, industry/market research, a presentation and recommendations in the form of a report.
