How does CAP work?
The CCIB is responsible for engaging the broader business community and encouraging companies and organizations to participate in CAP projects. Companies must be experiencing a real challenge or opportunity that has no existing or obvious solution in order to be considered.
Challenges or opportunities can be based in accounting, finance, marketing, operations, human resources, and the like.
Once companies are identified, students are paired with a business and work, over the course of a semester, to frame the challenge or opportunity and identify a possible solution. Professionally and academically-experienced faculty advisors guide students through this process, ensuring students receive better results and a more realistic project experience.
