Saunders College seeks firms for Capstone Project

Rochester Business Journal
April 8, 2014

The Saunders College of Business at Rochester Institute of Technology has knowledge to lend, and is looking for local companies to share in it.

The college is seeking area businesses to take part in the annual Capstone Project, sponsored by the executive MBA program. Applications are due April 18.

The executive MBA project teams spend a 20-hour week defining and analyzing a client’s problems, delving into areas that include manufacturing, finance, business strategy, marketing, human resource management and information systems.

“We see the ‘Capstone Projects’ as both a service to Rochester’s business community and an opportunity for our executive MBA students to demonstrate their expertise,” said Donald Wilson, director of the executive MBA program. “We are always interested in receiving capstone applications from organizations identifying problems that will challenge our EMBA students while tackling real issues at local companies.”

Participants must be willing to provide a project sponsor and share relevant information and data with student teams. RIT officials note the confidential studies are available only to company officers and faculty reviewers.

There is no fee to participate, though RIT said some companies have made contributions to the Saunders College executive MBA scholarship fund.

Firms interested in participating can find more information by visiting www.ritemba.com and clicking on Capstone Projects. Those interested also contact RIT’s executive MBA office at embamail@rit.edu.
