Directly following the MBA Products and Services Design Fair, (around 7:00pm) the Graduate School’s MBA and MPA Programs will present their graduating students’ Capstone Showcase. During this event, students completing their MPA degree requirements will present their Final Project Plans, and students completing their MBA degree requirements will present their New Venture Plans. These Project and Venture Plans outline a diverse, dynamic, and engaging set of Public Administration and Non-Profit Undertakings, and New Ventures, born out of our MBA and MPA Integrative Capstone Courses.
Our MBA and MPA Capstone teams often compete deep into major global business plan competitions; the Spring 2012 InFoods team won the top prize in the prestigious Madrona League Business Plan Competition, and members of that team have launched the venture as a going concern after their graduation.
Our Capstone Showcase is being sponsored by Allen Matkins Leck Gambie Mallory & Natsis LLP, a premier firm that focuses on real estate, litigation, labor, tax and business law, as well as the well-known real estate firm Jones Lang LaSalle. Our MPA and MBA Capstone students will have the chance to meet with potential investors, public policy leaders, and other key collaborators at a special reception at Allen Matkins’ downtown San Francisco offices as a part of this new sponsorship.
