MPEA-900-01

Capstone

All students are required to complete a three-credit capstone project as the culminating experience of the program. This course, taken during the student’s last semester, demonstrates the student’s advanced grasp of the discipline of higher education administration and provides the opportunity to synthesize all of the theoretical and practical content taught during the program into one course experience. Each student works with a faculty advisor who serves as a guide through the detailed development and execution of the project and related deliverables. The capstone project is also an opportunity for students to develop connections and gain mentors to help them progress in their career upon graduation. To successfully fulfill the capstone requirement, students must complete an applied research project or an in-depth research paper, and defend their work in front of a panel of faculty and experts.

Sem on Innovation in HEA

The future of work and education in our increasingly digital and globalized world is uncertain but exciting. This poses significant opportunities and challenges for Human Capital and Higher Education professionals. How do we bridge the education-workforce divide? How do we provide high quality and equitable education systems to equip workers with future-proof skills? How can we better educate individuals to succeed across cultures and borders? Qatar, the "tiny global giant", provides perfect context to explore these global challenges. The country's significant cultural, administrative, geographic and economic distance from the U.S. makes it an exciting place to build cultural intelligence and global competence while examining these important issues.

Note: This course meets online with a one-week intensive from March 8 through March 14 in Qatar. Department approval is required to enroll in this course.
