In a liberal arts setting, there are no “schools” or “colleges” in which to neatly group a capstone experience. We have developed a course meant to address a capstone experience, while being true to a focus within our particular major. In this paper, an effort to create a course designed as a capstone experience specific to the finance discipline using an active learning strategy is reviewed. The primary method of instruction is with case studies. However, only the first part of the course is taught using the traditional case teaching method. Most of the rest of the course is taught through student interaction and collaboration.
