Engage with Our Students

1. Co-create Solutions through Capstone Projects

Through capstone projects, our students incorporate their learning from the programme to address real-world business problems. Under close supervision of our faculty, selected student teams work alongside industry professionals to conduct market research, formulate strategies, and develop business plans, bringing fresh and forward-thinking solutions to the company’s unique business issues and challenges.

Capstone Projects offer a number of benefits to project sponsoring companies:

  • A cost-effective way to address specific business issues through our student teams with support by faculty supervisors.
  • A chance to gain fresh perspectives and new ideas from our student teams.
  • Opportunity to recruit bright graduates from a diverse pool of students.
  • Brand promotion among students, other project sponsors, and the wider community.
  • A valuable opportunity to connect with our faculty members who are subject matter experts in their respective areas.
