Candidates for completion of the Master of Science in Management (MSM), Master of Science in Healthcare Management (MSHCM), or the Master of Human Resources Management (MSHRM) degree will complete an independent project demonstrating their conceptual, analytical, research, and practical management skills achieved through the courses in either program. The project, called a Capstone because it represents a crowning achievement much as a capstone does in architecture, is a 3-credit, one-term requirement that is completed at the end of the program. It is a closely supervised experience resulting in a paper that demonstrates the student's ability to synthesize and utilize the skills and knowledge students have gained in previous courses in the MSHRM, MSHCM, or MSM programs.
Prerequisites: This course requires completion of ORR-510: Organizational Research. Students may not take ORR-510 and the Management Capstone during the same term.
Note: This is the last course taken to complete the degree program (academic advisor approval must be obtained prior to registration).
