Business Management Capstone
Students in the Business 480: Management Capstone course at UW-Stevens Point got a taste what to expect as they graduate and enter the work force with presentations to panels of judges from the business community this week.
The graduating seniors completed semester-long team research projects in which they conducted comprehensive strategic reviews of real companies. The students began by assessing important trends facing the companies, along with the companies’ key strengths and weaknesses. The teams then brainstormed to come up with three potential strategies the companies might consider. After further analysis, the teams decided which strategy would be best for their respective company.
The judges on Thursday were:
• Wayne Ashenberg – Retired Insurance & Investment Executive
• Dick Huseby – Church Mutual – VP HR & Strategic Initiatives
• Jeff Peterson – CliftonLarsonAllen – Partner
