The Senior Capstone project is designed for graduating seniors majoring in business. The course will integrate the
functional areas of business while stressing the formation and implementation of business strategies. The project
design is intended to enhance the students’ ability to recognize information patterns, which will make them more
effective financial consultants, accountants, and organizational leaders. In particular, readings and case analyses
are used to illustrate various types of business risk and components of financial and managerial relationships.
Students will develop effective arguments related to business scenarios so that their recommendations will be clear
and persuasive. The project will also develop students’ entrepreneurial skills.
The project will meet throughout the term. The professors involved in this project will, at times, address the class
individually, but generally the class will be team-taught. Prerequisites: senior standing and a business administration
major, including completion of 28 regular term units, BA 400 and either BA 474 or BA 475.
NOTE: There will be a $250 fee to cover the cost of supplies and other course-related expenses.
