Over a semester, students work in small groups to research, analyze and develop recommendations to address a particular challenge provided by the community partner. This final project of the Bachelor of Management degree offers both students and the organizations that participate, a unique opportunity to engage and learn from one another to solve real-time challenges.
Benefits of Participating
The Bachelor of Management Capstone projects are a win-win-win scenario that benefits all parties involved:
- Organizations benefit by receiving recommendations and solutions to an operational challenge.
- Organizations will receive a comprehensive written report and presentation outlining the student group’s research and proposed recommendations.
- Students benefit by being able to collaborate in a group while demonstrating learning and proficiency.
- UBC benefits by connecting with community partners, co-creating and advancing education programs to meet the ever-changing needs of our communities.
