MBA Capstone - Real World Experience
As part of our MBA capstone course (SMO 641: Business Strategy), you will work with an outside organization on a strategic issue they are facing. Your team will identify the issue and potential solutions, recommend a course of action and develop an implementation plan for your client. This provides an opportunity to apply what you've learned in the UAlberta MBA in a real-world setting and gain experience during your studies.
The UAlberta MBA equips students with the knowledge needed to function well in a corporate or entrepreneurial environment. With a required course in Career Management Skills, one-on-one coaching and career planning with the MBA Career Management Centre, and the opportunity to pursue a summer internship, you are well placed for success with the UAlberta MBA.
