The Executive Capstone Project

At Brown, we believe in the rigorous application of theory to practice. That’s why we intentionally design curriculum that transitions classroom learning directly to the boardroom.

Sandra Smith, Innovation and Corporate Engagement Officer, and Sandi Ferretti, Senior Adviser for Professional Programs, discuss one of the distinctive components of Brown University’s Executive Masters programs, the Executive Capstone Project. To complete this project, which addresses real-time industry challenges, students draw upon knowledge and skills from their coursework, think critically, and collaborate with program peers, faculty and advisers.
