MBA Business Capstone Unit – Lean Design

A key component of our MBA is a focus on the practical application of theory to real-world business situations.

In your final unit, you will confront the challenge that truly pioneering companies face: excellence in new product development.

You will learn and apply the art of lean start-up methodologies to a team project, while integrating the skills, knowledge and experience you have acquired throughout your MBA. At the end of this project, your team will deliver a prototype product to a group of senior stakeholders.

We have developed this unit through extensive consultation with industry, academics at the University of Sydney and academics and teachers at leading international institutions.

Read more in the Australian Financial Review about how some of our MBA students worked with one of the world’s largest reinsurance companies, Swiss Re, to develop commercially viable solutions for a multi-billion dollar problem: the cost of rehabilitating ill and injured workers.
