In this Capstone Business and Economics for a Circular Economy programme at Wageningen University and Research - WageningenX, you will work on integrating the technological section with the Business and Economics section and the Circular Economy part to develop a categorically more sustainable bio-based practice. The focus is on linking the various aspects into an integral research, based on literature research and applied to a practical case. 

The final product in this capstone project is a written report. This report should reflect the academic research capabilities on a Masters level, i.e. defining a research proposal, proper literature research, methodology, data, results and conclusions and discussion. 

Complete your MicroMasters credential by signing up for a virtually-proctored exam. This 2 hour, multiple choice exam will test your knowledge on all topics discussed in the 3 MicroMasters programme courses.
