Capstone course pairs Triad organizations with MBA students

For the seventh year, MBA students in UNCG’s Bryan School of Business and Economics will partner with local organizations to tackle business problems as part of the school’s Capstone Program.

Partner firms selected for the 2012-13 academic year include Amarr Garage Doors; Bank of Oak Ridge; Gilbarco Veeder-Root; Greensboro Children’s Museum; Industries of the Blind of Greensboro; Memios, LLC; Raffaldini Vineyards and Winery; Tanger Outlet Centers; TE Connectivity and Volvo GTT.

“By having our students work with local firms, they are able to move from the classroom and apply their knowledge in real time to our partner firms’ business challenges,” said Richard Browne, a professor of practice in the Bryan School. “The firms — ranging from not-for-profits to entrepreneurial firms to Fortune 200 companies — provide a challenging problem for the students to tackle and gain an actionable list of recommendations at the end of the project.”
