The Marketing Capstone Experience

The capstone project is the culmination of the master’s of marketing program. Working in teams, students create marketing proposals for a real company and product. The deliverables for each consulting project are based on the scope of the project requested by the external client. Sometimes students create a comprehensive, full stack marketing plan. Other times they are asked to focus on one element of the marketing plan, such as branding or promotion. As is the case in industry, what is delivered varies by the client engagement.
