Capstone Project

The capstone project combines experiential learning, community involvement, research, writing, and producing a one-of-a-kind product to illustrate your learning in at least one of the program's main themes: the arts, the environment, globalization, global public health, human rights, non-violence and war, religion, sustainability, and technology/communication. The products span a wide range of styles and give many viewpoints on the subjects of our project. By creating unique material, such as conducting workshops, videos, and podcasts, we illustrate our understanding in the form of a multi-genre research project.


While having an effective plan is essential for success in the global business market, understanding global trends and their effects on the economy is essential for success.

Research Paper

Here is the introduction of my research project where it talks about how businesses are essential in the global world



Businesses are essential to society because they provide goods and services to customers, promote employment development, and generate revenue. Large businesses often dominate the global business market, and individuals seek these businesses to satisfy their physical and emotional needs. However, small businesses should not be disregarded because they have a significant impact on the economy. Compared to bigger companies, small businesses often generate less profit and employ fewer people. They often operate in niche areas and are more prep​​ared to address shifting requests. An efficient plan is essential for small businesses to successfully navigate the global business market. They must know how global trends are affecting the economy and how to take advantage of these trends. With the right plan, small businesses may compete successfully with larger companies in the global business market.

This poem is for a capstone project and is one of my products that I will be doing. This poem explores the challenges and opportunities facing small businesses in today's global economy. The project highlights the importance of learning essential skills, securing funding and expertise from investors, adapting to changing economic trends, and building a dedicated team with a shared vision. It also emphasizes the significance of developing unique products and services, effective marketing strategies, and sound financial management. In the poem's conclusion, I emphasize the value of connecting and mentorship in assisting small companies in thriving and overcoming whatever challenges they may encounter. The project's overall message is that success is not solely determined by scale and that tiny enterprises may have a big effect on the global economy.


Small but Mighty

In this global world we live in,

Where big businesses seem to always win,

Small businesses have a chance to thrive,

If they learn the skills to stay alive.


Investors can be a key to growth,

Bringing funding and expertise both,

With the right help, small businesses can soar,

And reach heights they've never seen before.


Global trends and economic influences,

Can make or break a business, it's true,

Adaptation and innovation are the keys,

To stay ahead and succeed, don't you see?


But it's the team that makes it all work,

With passion, dedication, and a drive that lurks,

Small businesses can turn a dream into reality,

With a team that shares the same mentality.


A product or service that's unique,

Can help small businesses find their winning streak,

Marketing with precision and aim,

Creating a brand that's hard to tame.


Finances and bookkeeping can be a bore,

But they're essential to keep track of what's in store,

Profits made and expenses spent,

Can make or break a business, in the end.


Networking and mentoring, peers and guides,

Can offer advice and insights that coincide,

With a vision and plan that's clear and defined,

Small businesses can rise and shine.


For size is not the only measure,

Of success or wealth or treasure,

With grit and determination,

Small businesses can overcome any situation.


So don't be afraid to take a leap,

To pursue your dreams and your beliefs,

Small businesses have much to give,

In a global world, they can truly live.
