Got a business problem? Local companies will again have access to knowledgeable and ambitious teams of consultants from Rochester Institute of Technology at no charge.
For the past 20 years, RIT has invited area businesses to take part in the annual Capstone Project, sponsored by the Executive MBA program at Saunders College of Business. All applications for the Capstone Project are due by April 18.
Experienced managers and executives from RIT’s EMBA program have helped strengthen more than 60 local and diverse businesses—including GE, JML Optical Industries Inc., Monroe Tractor, DeCarolis Truck Rental, Excellus and United Way of Greater Rochester Inc.
The EMBA project teams will spend a 20-week period defining and analyzing a client’s problems in areas such as manufacturing, finance, business strategy, marketing, human resource management and information systems. Host company executives with RIT faculty review each team’s analysis and final presentations.
