Course Details

This business consulting project course is the second of a two-part capstone experience that began with BSUS 5200 and focuses on helping an industry client address a sustainable business challenge or innovation opportunity. In this course, students complete their projects and deliver these projects to their clients. Students conduct primary research as well as any additional necessary secondary research to validate and extend results. Students manage and interpret data collected in BSUS 5200 and draw on accepted tools and best practices from sustainable business theory and practice. Students develop a communication strategy and communicate results through a final consulting project report, other deliverable(s) requested by the client, and a professional presentation.
