Capstone Design: Participating students continue the work on the topic selected in MKT 500. Students are required to present their findings at the end of the project in the form of a seminar as well as a written formal report. Capstone Projects are intended to be intensive, active learning projects, requiring significant effort in the planning and implementation, as well as preparation of a substantial final written work product. Students should utilize faculty re-sources and seek consultations from faculty expertise to get a clear answer about what the project will entail and how it will be implemented.
