Capstone Project

This program requires completion of a capstone project, instead of a master's thesis. The capstone project topic should be useful to you and your firm. It will help you better understand structured problem solving and expand your ability to use literature research, frameworks, and data in problem solving. You should include your supervisor in the topic selection process. 

The capstone project is a six-credit project that unfolds in three phases. During phase one, you will select a topic and create a problem statement and development plan with proposed methods and sources of data. During phase two, you will collect and analyze the data if needed.

During phase three, you will be assigned a faculty advisor who has experience with the topic you are working with. You will hold regular meetings with your advisor as you complete your project. The faculty mentor will assign the final project grade. 

Capstone projects can be kept confidential and do not become the property of Purdue University.

  I just wanted to thank you for all the work and effort you put into the international residency in Argentina. Reflecting on the week, it is very apparent that an extreme amount of time went into not only planning the logistics of the trip, but more importantly all the effort that must have gone into making those connections and networks with such a high calibre of individuals in all the companies and farms we visited.

I was extremely impressed by the quality of the businesses we attended and influential businesspersons were we able to meet—and more importantly have discussions with. It is very apparent to me that a great deal of hard work went into the week, and the trip enormously exceeded my expectations.

Thank you again for an incredibly memorable and educational trip.
