Curriculum Design Symposium: The Hidden Curriculum - Developing more diverse and inclusive capstones for undergraduate management and business students

With a changing cultural and socio-economic student demographic profile and changing employer needs it is important that Business Schools develop more diverse and inclusive capstone options which take into consideration the skills and aspirations of their students to better prepare them for their future of work. This presentation provides insights into our experiences of designing and implementing two alternative capstones at Newcastle University Business School. The first alternative Advanced Business Practice offers a practice-based alternative to consultancy-style projects and the second alternative Advanced Business Topics provides a research-based alternative to the traditional dissertation.
