Qualifikations- und Lernziele des Moduls:

A capstone project is a culminating activity that allows MBA students to demonstrate the knowledge and skills they have acquired during their MBA studies. It engages students in a project that focuses on an interest, career path, or academic pursuit and that synthesizes different components of their master studies and real life management perspective. It can take the form of a business plan or consulting project.
The module capstone project consists of two components: a capstone thesis and a capstone thesis defense. Students will indicate that they are capable of applying key knowledge and skills to one or more area(s) of personal interest and/or managerial issues, by planning, completing, and presenting a capstone thesis under the supervision of an academic supervisor. Students should be able to critically analyze and solve practical problems by applying academic research methods to support real life management decision processes.
During the capstone thesis defense, students have to present their project findings and demonstrate that they are not only capable of independently producing a capstone thesis but also that they can justify their findings and recommendations in accordance with academic and managerial requirements.
