Culminating Graduation Requirement

MGT 450 Strategic Management and Business Policy

Capstone course and final culminating graduation requirement for the Business Management major. With the support and advice of faculty, students choose a specific topic to examine in depth. Students review relevant research and write a paper using the UI&U outcomes, major outcomes, and course specific outcomes that address the topic. The paper serves as the CGR for the major, challenging students to draw on theoretical and practical information gained to create a document that demonstrates their mastery of knowledge acquired through the entire degree program.
