In this course, you will make informed career decisions by taking the time to mindfully reflect on your internship experiences. You will become equipped with the strategies needed to take ownership of your career development and choices. Assigned readings, on-line discussions and reflection pieces will get you to think critically about your individual career goals. By the end of the semester you will gain expertise in an important lifelong skill: self-managed career development.

Congratulations on completing EXP7501 and EXP7502 and for starting your third internship experience. Similar to EXP7502, you will be required to conduct weekly reflections through a digital journal.

Through the process of journaling you will become a "STAR" job candidate! STAR candidates are those who take the time to reflect and assess their career using the STAR framework you employed in your reflections during EXP7502. By the end of the course you will be able to articulate professional successes, failures, challenges and opportunities to differentiate yourself as you embark on your post-MBA career.

MBA7350 - CAPSTONE: BABSON CONSULTING ALLIANCE PROGRAM
CAPSTONE: BABSON CONSULTING ALLIANCE PROGRAMBabson Consulting Alliance Program One of Babson's signature learning experiences is the Babson Consulting Alliance Program (BCAP). BCAP plays an integral role in helping students integrate their classroom knowledge into sound business practices. First-year MBA candidates are matched with alliance companies from industries in which they have expressed a career interest. Guided by an advisor, BCAP teams work directly with company representatives to complete a project. The BCAP project is designed to address specific alliance company needs and will focus on solutions to real business problems. Past projects have focused on topics such as market segmentation, organizational design, performance measurement, activity analysis, and costing skills that are developed in the MBA curriculum. Typically the project concludes with a written report and a presentation with recommendations from the team to company executives. Babson's context of experiential learning involves a three part accountability structure: Peer group learning, an academic advisor and curriculum, and a client sponsor.
