Two capstone options are offered: The Leading Edge Leadership Institute and Thesis.


All incoming students are automatically enrolled in The Leading Edge (students may choose either an emphasis or elective option). If students wish to pursue the Thesis option, students must make application and be accepted into the Thesis option. Applications for the Thesis option are available from the Director of The Leading Edge and Thesis Capstone Programs. The Thesis option takes


approximately one year longer to complete than The Leading Edge.


With any option, students complete a foundation course that serves as an introduction to both qualitative and quantitative research methods. This course, BUS 680 Foundations of Research, is a core course that all students complete during their first 12 credits in the program.


Students who choose The Leading Edge option will complete one zero credit course (BUS 785), followed by three one-credit courses (BUS 786, 787, and 788). Students are eligible to enroll in BUS 785 upon successful completion of 30 or more credits in the program. BUS 785, 786, 787, and 788 may be taken simultaneously with other coursework. However, students may want to consider the labor-intensive nature of this capstone course when considering scheduling.


Students who choose the Thesis option will complete an additional research methods course (BUS 681 or 682) and BUS 795, 796, and 797 (Thesis courses). These courses must be taken at the end of the student’s program, once all other coursework has been completed. Completion of these final research methods courses and the Thesis takes approximately one year after coursework is completed.
