Master Student Presentations
On June 18, 2021, the first group of RIT Kosovo Master Students, presented their Capstone Projects, which represented a culmination of their graduate program experience. As part of the Master Capstone project, students work over two semesters in identifying a real-world problem (The Capstone Proposal Stage), conducting research, and providing solutions and recommendations to the problem (The Capstone Development Stage).

The overarching program goal is to produce leaders who are capable of anticipating the future and applying foresight methods and the associated insights to successful project and program implementation.
The program will enable business and organization leaders and other professionals to improve their strategic thinking and planning and improve the way they make future-related decisions and deal with ensuing change. Program participants will also be able to develop professional expertise in terms of managing and leading future foresight and strategic planning projects with the completion of RIT’s Project Management MicroMasters® that is part of this program.
