dc.description.abstract The Ashesi University Business Administration Applied Project capstone provides students with a unique opportunity to gain real-life experience in the working world as junior consultants. The purpose of this study was to identify challenges students encounter in their Applied Project journeys under a student-led model where students are in control of most of their experience. The study was qualitative, employing interviews and surveys as research tools to gain insight into the student-led experience. The main challenges were student choosing applied projects for the wrong reasons, encountering difficulty in finding a supervisor, working around the high ratio of supervisors to students and the proximity of the deadlines for finding a supervisor, topic and company. The recommendations addressed the challenges in the best interest of the student, that would help them to take better control of their experience. It also includes some methods faculty in charge can employ in organizing the capstone. en_US
