BSBA Capstone
#1
Hi everyone,

I'm getting close to taking the BSBA capstone and I was wondering what should I expect. I'm a little nervous about it. How long should I plan to dedicate towards it? I have a full time job and a long commute to work so I don't have much time during the week. All the study.com and excelsior classes that I have taken have been during the weekend. Does anyone have any advice on completing the capstone?

Interested in this as well.

I'm going to be applying to an MBA program afterwards, and I feel the Capstone course will be the best preparation I can get for it.

Are you asking about the BSBA at Excelsior? I'm guessing so based on the rest of your post, but wanted to clarify for others who might have the info you need (which I don't) but not be clear on which school you're referencing

Just noticed this, lol, one track mind... I'm interested in TESU, not sure where the OP is going.

If you guys have taken StraighterLine and Study.com courses to complete the requirements of your degree, you just need to know one thing. The capstone is a cumulative of all the courses combined, it'll be doable as long as you put the time and effort into it. Further to that, the course is "geared" towards adults who are working. The main thing is, do the discussions, assignments ahead of time and research/work on the project you are assigned. Don't sweat it! You got this...

The BSBA Capstone was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I would say that you need to do a few things.
1) Pay attention to deadlines! I put deadlines on my calendar, and paid close attention.

2) Set aside time to do your work. I spent every Monday from 9am-11am to read the chapter and take notes. I took my time and was very thorough. Then, I would do the discussion assignments (or posts for online) on Wednesday nights, and the Case Studies on Thursday mornings. That left me with plenty of time to finish anything I needed to by the due date (may have been Saturday nights, maybe Sunday).

3) Make a plan and stick to it. If weekends are when you have time to do your work, make sure you do everything on the weekend. Don't get distracted. Don't fall behind.

4) Schedule your midterm sooner rather than later. Give yourself time in case there's a problem with ProctorU. I think I did mine a week and a half earlier than the due date because it was Thanksgiving and we were going out of town.

5) Communicate with the mentor. If there's a problem, tell him/her ahead of time. Ask questions ahead of time. I started the final project and realized I didn't know if I needed to do MLA or APA, the guidelines referenced both!

6) Start your final project early. At least the research on your topic can begin very early. Do not dither over which one to choose. Pick one and run with it. It doens't matter which one, you will have very little info to begin with, and so much by the end that you will hate whichever subject you choose! If I would have known this, I would have been much better off. Just choose and go.

I cannot stress enough that if you get into a good routine and stay ahead of assignments, you'll be fine. If you get behind, it's hard to catch up.
