The Capstone Consulting Experience

A 40-Year Legacy.

Capstone Presentation

The Capstone Consulting Experience gives students the opportunity to solve a strategic problem facing an organization. Since its launch in 1973 as one of the first student consulting and research programs in the U.S., the Capstone Consulting Experience has prepared graduate students to consult with business leaders. MBA students in the Capstone Consulting Experience have completed over 900 projects for more than 500 companies including Fortune 1000 firms, entrepreneurial ventures and nonprofit organizations.

Real-World Education. Innovative Solutions.

The Capstone Consulting Experience is the culmination of a MBA student's education put into practice to address an organization’s strategic or operational issues. Students combine work experience and knowledge from their practical business education to develop solutions for their client firms.

Real, Actionable Results.

The Capstone Consulting Experience provides a cost-effective solution for corporations, nonprofits, and governments that lack the time, budgets, or human resources to address specific strategic initiatives. Consulting projects are carried out by teams of students working under the supervision of a professor with extensive consulting and project management experience. 

The Capstone Consulting Experience has been a valuable resource for hundreds of organizations, providing actionable solutions to business problems or opportunities for growth. If you would like your organization to benefit from the Capstone Consulting Experience, please contact Ben Gibbs at bgibbs@udallas.edu.

"As students, we're given the opportunity to work with a 'live' company and apply our knowledge and skills in a real-world environment.
