Our major capstone project forms part of the practical application of concepts built up on the programme:
Final Group Project
During Lent and Easter Terms you undertake a final capstone project in groups of four to six students. The final group project (FGP), which is double weighted, is linked to Cambridge Judge Business School’s subject groups and is based on work with a public or private technology-intensive organisation.
Assessment is via a 12,000 word final report produced under faculty supervision and a final presentation to the client organisation.
You will be asked to submit two peer evaluation forms, one at the beginning of your work and one at the end, to the academic supervisor. Feedback from your peers as well as that of the client organisation may be taken into consideration when marking the presentations.
Past projects have involved a range of leading public and private sector organisations from around the world and many of these projects have been hosted by our alumni. A sample of project client organisations from the past few years includes:
