Elon MBA Capstone
Each spring, the graduating class comes together for the required capstone workshop. Students evaluate the progress they’ve made in reaching their program goals, enjoy networking dinners, and work in teams for the annual MBA Case Competition.
The case competition is validation that the strategies we’ve developed during the program are effective and useful tools to apply at our current jobs and as we grow in our careers.
Over the course of two weeks, teams are challenged to conduct a case analysis and present their findings and strategic recommendations to a panel of judges acting as the client. The event is an opportunity to apply and showcase the knowledge and skills acquired in the program.
One of my favorite parts of the Elon MBA program is exposure to new ideas that are outside of what I may hear within my typical bubble (company or industry). Working closely on a capstone competition in a short period of time expedited this process and allowed me to test what I had learned.
