Undergraduate Senior Capstone Project

UG-SCP is a business resolution platform created by the Naveen Jindal School of Management (JSOM) and aims at solving real-life business problems. Companies are invited to share senior/capstone projects for which no in-company resources can be allocated. Each of these projects will be worked on by a team of 3-6 qualified senior undergraduate students in the context of their highly ranked academic programs, under the guidance of a faculty and company advisor. UG-SCP offers well-defined project goals and scope, clear deliverables with milestones and access to all data.

Partnerships between the Jindal School of Management (JSOM) and industry have always been beneficial to both our undergraduate students and companies, particularly, in those in the North Texas area.

JSOM undergraduate students are required to complete a senior capstone project course before graduation. Capstone projects provide opportunities for JSOM students to test their knowledge of what they have learned in the classroom and apply it in an industry setting. The projects take place in an environment in which students can learn how to solve real-world problems that companies face in their daily operations. The projects also enable students and faculty to build stronger relationships with industry professionals.

Typically, students work in small groups during one semester to understand a problem, analyze its requirements, perform a cost analysis and develop a solution to resolve the issue. All companies are encouraged to take advantage of these opportunities to collaborate with JSOM’s faculty and students, provide projects for classrooms.
