In an effort to promote engagement with organizations in the not-for-profit sector, Molloy College’s graduate business program includes an experiential learning component. Prospective graduates of the MBA program are required to complete a rigorous Capstone course, through which students provide consulting services to a not-for-profit organization. Tasked with finding solutions to real problems, the students must apply their cross-disciplinary knowledge and skills to develop a comprehensive proposal for their clients. In one short seven-week semester, class members must form teams with fellow students, meet their clients, assess the problems presented and develop comprehensive proposals. This paper describes the consulting project undertaken by a team of Fall 2020 MBA students, as well as the local not-for-profit organization and its challenges.
