What is a Capstone Project Partnership?
In the final quarter of the BAS-AM program, senior-level students engage in a culminating project that articulates their learning through research and analysis of a current, real-world issue. BAS-AM is seeking local businesses and non-profit organizations to partner in providing project topics and mentorship for students through the process. Capstone Teams will work collaboratively to address a challenge or opportunity experienced at the organization, and applying business principles, will develop recommendations delivered through a written report and presentation.
How to become a Capstone Project Partner
The Capstone Partner Application below will give you the opportunity to share important information about your organization and the challenge or opportunity you would like the BAS-AM student team to address during the quarter.
A student team and instructor will be assigned to the project in the spring. The project will take place over 10 weeks from April 3, 2023 to June 15, 2023.
The Capstone Project Partner will agree to meet with the student team 2-3 times throughout the quarter, provide relevant resources to help them understand the project, and schedule a time for the team to deliver the final report and presentation (between June 5 and 16). Meetings and the presentation will be virtual unless all participants agree to meet at a campus location.
Decisions on project acceptance will be made as soon as possible after the application is submitted.
