Become a corporate partner with the Stevens School of Business and you'll get access to our student talent, modern analytics and expert faculty. Our students work in consulting teams with faculty support to analyze business problems and recommend appropriate actions to corporate partners. The Industry Capstone Program is an integral part of the graduate curriculum at the School of Business and delivers value to our corporate partners.
Access to Student Talent & Faculty Support
Gain access to highly motivated students who bring a fresh look to complex problems. The Industry Capstone Program is exclusively offered to School of Business graduate students and is a requirement for MBA & AMBA students. Each project team consists of 4-6 graduate students and a faculty advisor with extensive industry experience to ensure success. Faculty advisors contribute their academic knowledge, research and consulting experience to the team in their capacity as project supervisors.
Access to Modern Analytics Techniques
Working with Stevens students is often a learning experience for managers, who get to see how tomorrow's leaders use analytics, machine learning, computational methods and software design in identifying trends, solving problems and devising strategies. Students are able to use cutting-edge tools in unique labs, including the Hanlon Financial Systems Center, to assist them in performing complex analytical tasks. At the end of the project, sponsors receive a written report and formal presentation at the conclusion of the project. The report will analyze the defined problem and present recommendations and conclusions that are designed to be immediately applicable to the sponsor.

The Industry Capstone Program accepts submissions on a rolling basis and this opportunity is offered to students each fall, spring, and summer semester.
