Business Projects

Tap into the energy and expertise of our business students to develop solutions and move your initiatives forward.


All of our undergraduate and graduate students complete a Capstone Project as part of their hands-on education at Portland State’s School of Business..

Bring us your business challenges, and we will match you with a student team to tackle it.
