  The opportunity to build a Capstone case study upon an idea that is of my company’s interest, which has attracted support from cooperators, and has the potential to become a real business case, has made a huge difference to me, and the unconditional support my company is providing for this program.

The confluence of different types of assets towards designing, shaping, analyzing and reporting the Capstone ideas and results makes this MS-MBA program unique. Through the Capstone process, I had to heavily rely on the help from several professors at Purdue and IU. I also have taken lots of elements from prior courses in designing the case, running the analysis and building towards a final report.

I look back and I think how lucky I have been to pick the right idea, at the right time, and with the right people to work with. Having a network of professors, advisors and colleagues from whom I can draw support, knowledge and guidance is a cornerstone for success in testing ideas like this within our MS-MBA program. Both my company and our partners rely on that; and because of that, they are willing to move forward from the computer models, to pilot testing, to real business opportunities.
