Global Consulting Capstone

Modern buisness is more globally connected than ever before, even when a firm’s customer base is primarily or entirely domestic. To gain practical experience in international business, students participate in the Global Consulting Capstone to apply their MBA training in a practical setting.

During their final term, all students will work with a globally-focused company based either locally or abroad on a project developed in partnership with the host business, ideally focused on an area of growth for their own career. From this work, students develop a consulting report and present this analysis in a formal setting as a capstone presentation. 

Travel for this portion of the MBA is not required, as many global firms have a local presence, but is encouraged for professional development.

Past Projects

Our corporate partners help provide real-world experiences for our students. Past projects have worked with companies such as Valmont, ConAgra, CBRE, and CSG International, consulting on projects such as new market entry and new product rollout, financial modeling for developing markets, and internal corporate development

Students will develop analytic and presentation skills, as well as a project portfolio to take with them during an in-depth final consulting experience that functions as an MBA capstone.
