Put your business skills to the test in this unique, hands-on capstone project proposing solutions for real businesses.
During the required upper-level MNGT 481 Strategic Management course, senior-level accounting, business administration and e-business majors test the knowledge and skills they have learned throughout their academic careers in a course-wide competition. Teams in each class section tackle a real business case provided by a local company.
The competition not only challenges you to think on many different levels at once but exercise your communication and presentation skills as well. It’s a valuable opportunity to say you've researched and provided solutions to a real business problem and to potentially present to company executives.
Every academic term, one company provides a case based on a question or issue the company is considering. Students across all sections of MNGT 481 are divided into teams and given three weeks to research and prepare a written report and presentation. Teams present to their classes and the winning team from each class section goes on to the final where they present to executives from the company.
