The central course-work project
The Capstone project is a central thread of the programme’s learning experience; it will integrate the various skills, frameworks, and knowledge the students are going to acquire throughout the course of the programme.
The project will test participants’ leadership skills as the teamwork is an integral part of the project. To ensure rigorous execution of the project, the EMBA HS supports teams with the Leadership Stream. The programme also offers a pool of Advisors comprising of highly respected individuals who are academic thought-leaders corporate leaders, successful entrepreneurs and investors.
Teams will choose a Capstone project themed around (i) Eurasia, including the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), or/and (ii) innovation and the technologies of the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR). To support the development of the Capstone, the teams can incorporate advanced concepts from marketing, finance, operations management and all the disciplines they will be exposed to during the programme modules.
The real-world relevance of the projects means that teams will have to learn by immersing themselves and pivoting in the dynamic and emerging global business environment.
The Capstone teams will have up to 5 members (for exceptions consult the academic directors). These can be formed voluntary from Module 1. Changes in the teams are allowed during the first half of the programme.
The work on Capstone project is deeply integrated throughout the whole programme and will include 3 pitches in Switzerland, Silicon Valley and Israel. The pitches will be judged by panels comprising both faculty and invited VCs and investors.
The final Capstone project presentations will take place during the final module in Moscow. In their final presentation, teams will have no more than 20 minutes to present the project, followed by a 25-minute Q&A session with the panel.
As the main outcome of the project, an integrated system of all the courses attended during the programme will be formed and completed and will come away with an understanding of the practical aspects of working in a cross-cultural team on a large-scale project covering the entire Eurasian region.
