Mentored Capstone Projects

Students work individually or in small teams to complete a year-long Capstone Project that can take the form of a business start-up, an intrapreneurial career development strategy (often including a professional internship), or independent sustainability consulting. Working one-on-one with their faculty advisors, students develop deep expertise in their chosen sub-field of business. In conjunction with Bard's MBA career development process, the Capstone provides an ideal avenue for students seeking to identify their life passion, develop a business model around it, and pursue an effective career transition.

Chelsea Mozen is building solar energy at scale. Bernell Grier’s work is helping hundreds of low and moderate-income people buy houses. And Jessica King is committed to cutting the poverty rate in a depressed Pennsylvania town in half within the next decade. These initiatives all emerged over last year’s capstone class in Bard’s new MBA in Sustainability.
