Abstract: This paper outlines the content of a Master of Science in Information System degree and the development and deployment of the first two iterations of the capstone course. Research shows that a capstone course can be valuable for both students and future employers. The steps taken to prepare for the course and set up the capstone course are included. Students utilized an agile methodology, Scrum, with regular meetings and five sprints. Students answered questions about their experience with the capstone course and the findings from two cohorts of students are shared. The paper concludes with considerations for future follow up and iterations.
