This twenty-three week capstone of the MGM program, integrates much of the program’s overall course content, and is ideal for learners with previous experience. In this course each student must conduct a business assessment along with a literature review that supports analysis and recommendations to be included in a 10,500-15,000 word report. The student may choose an applied management research project on a particular industry, topic or organization, or do a consulting project addressing a particular issue identified by an organization. Students will be required to complete a series of online instructional modules supporting the various deliverables from research methodology through to writing the final report. Pre-requisites: all prior coursework or equivalent must be successfully completed before participating in MGMT 581.
