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 MBA curriculum, during which MBA candidates undertake strategic management projects for client organizations in northeast Iowa. 

Potential clients are drawn from both the business and non-profit 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.

The MBA candidates work in small consulting teams and analyze the organization's 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 graduate faculty who has expertise in the topic of the project. 

Projects are selected each fall. Organizations that would like more information or to propose a Capstone Experience project should contact Capstone Coordinator Dale Cyphert at 319-273-6150 or
