About the content
After completing the four content courses in the MicroMasters program, students are encouraged to complete the Capstone Assessment and earn their MicroMasters credential from UQx.
This capstone offers students the opportunity to bring their learnings together and exhibit their knowledge and growth through four activities:
- A traditional knowledge test derived from the questions already posed following each MicroMasters topic.
- An oral presentation (video) based around a photo essay: a series of pictures that identify an innovation, how that innovation is supported by economy and how the innovation impacts the economy.
- A business-model canvas (written essay) based on an innovative idea developed by the student.
- A 3 minute oral pitch of their business-model idea and subsequent Q&A session with a member of the faculty, conducted via a live video interview.
Learners must successfully complete all four parts of the assessment to earn the MicroMasters credential.
This course is only open to learners who have successfully completed and gained verified certificates in all four courses in the Corporate Innovation MicroMasters program.
