CEDAR FALLS -- The University of Northern Iowa is seeking potential clients for its UNI MBA Pella 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 acrossP Iowa.

Potential clients can come from both the business and non-profit sectors, and UNI is particularly interested in soliciting clients from Pella and surrounding communities for the Pella-based program. Projects are developed to meet the specific needs of the client, typically addressing strategic planning, marketing analysis, process analysis or feasibility questions.

For the Capstone projects, 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. Student teams will start the projects during summer 2014 and finish by year end. 

Projects will be selected by mid-April. Organizations that would like to propose a Capstone Experience project for the UNI MBA Pella cohort should contact Capstone Coordinator Sarah Rosol at 319-273-3954 or
