A capstone class is the final activity for students as they complete their undergraduate requirements. Faculty in the Business and Information Technology Department at Montana Tech of The University of Montana determined to add more rigor to the capstone class that would better prepare students as they enter the work force. A student-engagement pedagogical method was selected over the traditional lecture model. Thirty-eight students completed the redesigned class and 100% of the students felt they were better prepared to move forward as they graduated from college and begin the next stage of their lives.
