The Career Capstone Project
This project is a unique, customised opportunity for students to reinforce their career prospects by addressing a practical, real world challenge using the skills and knowledge they have acquired throughout their program of study, mentored by both industry professionals and academics.
Students may propose their own project or collaborate with our alumni in executive positions to further develop expertise and experience in a subject of particular interest. The Career Capstone Project is designed to allow each student to dedicate a large part of their time to an area which they value, in order to achieve their career goals after graduating.
The focus is on hospitality, but the Career Capstone Project extends to the services sector in general, preparing students to find creative, resourceful solutions for any hospitality-related business challenge. The topic can range from the development of a business plan for a start-up venture, to the design of a real-estate development plan, to the creation of a new vision for an institution.
Over the course of this work the students will act as consultants to their client. They will, first, undertake the necessary research to gain a full understanding of the general context as well as the specific aspects of the project. Once a solid knowledge base has been built, the students will then use their analytical skills and creative talent to develop and, ultimately, present their recommendations to the client. EHL’s professional resources and coaching help ensure that the students’ recommended actions are grounded in realistic assessments and will lead to successful and sustainable solutions.
