This paper emerges from a pedagogical philosophy that a business student should experience real-world problem solving that allows him or her to demonstrate evidence of learning and its application to the world of business. This paper builds the case that business education must lead the student toward a professional outcome where he or she can apply the knowledge and skills gained during the college journey so that he or she is prepared for all that is expected of the student as a business professional. The outcome of this paper is one college’s journey to develop a capstone consulting experience that is transformative for the student and serves society. An important component of this capstone experience is the opportunity for the students to study a problem and to make a set of solution-driven recommendations that will lead to social good.
