CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The MBA program at the University of Northern Iowa is seeking potential clients for its annual Capstone Experience. The Capstone Experience is a comprehensive, end-of-program application of the UNI College of Business Administration graduate curriculum, during which MBA candidates undertake strategic management projects for client organizations across northeast Iowa.

Potential clients are drawn from both the business and nonprofit sectors. Projects are developed to meet the specific needs of the client, but typically they address strategic planning, marketing analysis, process analysis or feasibility questions. The work is completed in the spring of each year.

MBA candidates work in small consulting teams formed with sufficient diversity to successfully analyze a business problem from a strategic perspective. Each team includes members with expertise across a range of business functions, business cultures and analytical methods. Teams work with a mentor from the business graduate faculty who has expertise in the topic of the project.

Proposals are accepted August through October. Organizations that would like to propose a Capstone Experience project for the upcoming year are encouraged to contact Capstone coordinator Dale Cyphert at 319-273-6150 or
