As the capstone course in the business major, this course seeks to integrate and apply the knowledge and skills acquired throughout the major. Through case studies and hands-on business strategizing and planning, students use the interrelated best practices of accounting, economics, finance, management, marketing, and operations to solve real business problems and identify real business opportunities. The knowledge, skill, and virtue goals of the Department of Business and Leadership are cultivated and reinforced throughout the course.
The arc of this course will begin with on overview of business strategy and will then practice critical thinking through analysis and hands-on experiential learning of current business issues via case study, new business development, critical business literature review, and multiple stategy debates. Students will also be exposed to various career opportunities via class speakers, as well as career preparation via resume, Linked In, and interviewing tutorials, and Life After Jewell sessions.
