March 21-22, 2014 was the conclusion of the EMBA Cohort 10, 19-month journey. During their final time as a cohort, various groups presented their Capstone Project to a handful of judges which included faculty, administration and alumni. This panel observed, evaluated, and posed questions to each group post-presentation.
The purpose of this course was to demonstrate not only the notion of moving from business strategies to business processes, but the need for integrating the two in order to improve business profitability, quality, customer service and satisfaction.
Although all the presentations were absolutely phenomenal, the “Neverland Island Adventure” presented by Margo Haines, Lauren Hall, Cody Hampton, and Angie Steven was recognized as the best presentation overall.
Congratulations to all Cohort 10 students on your MBA accomplishments! The Stetson Executive MBA Team wishes you all the best in your career and life. We are definitely going to miss having you in the Celebration Center.
Winner Project – Neverland Island Adventure
Margo Haines, Lauren Hall, Cody Hampton, Angie Stevens.
The project is a proposal to reimagine an existing property located at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, FL. The suggestion is to transform what is currently the abandoned Discovery Island location in the center of Bay Lake into a new, fully immersive destination experience called The Neverland Island Adventure. On this Adventure, guests will visit a real island, filled with immersive characters and attractions that only premiums brand such Disney can offer. The product includes an all-inclusive full-day trip to Neverland Island, filled with seven unique lands and with a variety of attractions to experience. In addition, this is an ideal location for private events, weddings, and much more!
Disney’s Botanical Gardens
Judy Ashbrook, Sabrina Singleton, Mayra Santiago, Maureen Karkovice.
Disney’s Botanical Gardens is a new guest experience, offering to the guests the opportunity to take a “break” from the hectic pace of their vacation plans. The project combines the outdoors with educational and interactive activities, healthy meals, characters throughout the park to enhance their experience, and a chance to stroll in beautiful themed gardens allowing guests time to enjoy their friends and family.
