IKNS Capstone Projects

IKNS Capstone Projects

The final course and culminating experience for IKNS students is the Capstone Project: Working in teams, and guided by IKNS faculty, students carry out an advising project with one of IKNS' many trusted sponsors. Are you curious what it's like to work on an organization's internal taskforce and advise your colleagues on innovative digital solutions towards greater success? Want to experience working on an external consulting team, using state of the art tools from information science and organizational psychology to devise and implement recommendations towards lasting change? That's what the Capstone experience is about.

During this final course, students will hone the practical skills and deepen the understanding of the academic frameworks they acquired during the IKNS curriculum - and enjoy tremendous opportunities for networking with leading global corporates, non-profits, or NGOs.
