Integrated Management Project and Articulation and Critical Thinking (IMPACT)
MBA Capstone Requirement
Through our IMPACT curriculum, you will build a broad foundation of business knowledge and skills. You’ll deepen your expertise in accounting, business analytics, entrepreneurship, finance, general management, innovation, marketing, organizational behavior, strategy and technology management. Globalization, responsible business ethics and sustainability are integrated throughout our program.
Our capstone course will sharpen your writing, speaking and critical-thinking abilities. You’ll then put your collective business skills and knowledge to work on a 10-week strategic team project for partner companies ranging from Fortune 500 firms to Silicon Valley tech companies. By creatively responding to real-world business issues, you’ll deepen the analytical, technical and leadership skills you need to succeed.
Our professors are industry experts, actively engaged with the business world through pioneering research and cutting edge consulting. They share the newest management ideas and practices drawn from research, case studies and lessons from top executives – and will challenge you to lead responsibly.
The IMPACT program provides a unique career development experience. Students are afforded the opportunity to network and gain valuable experience through their client engagement that increases their marketability and can translate into employment post-graduation. Students report using their IMPACT experiences in job interviews and for some students these engagements can result in job offers from the sponsor clients.
