Capstone project lacks coherence

The concept of developing the fundamental knowledge of business is wonderful. Each of the individual courses provide excellent content knowledge, and achieve their stated learning objectives. However, the courses fail to prepare enough skills to tackle the capstone project. For example, you are asked to develop a marketing plan with no prior exposure to developing a marketing plan in the individual marketing course. This can be a huge barrier for those without a marketing background. The videos and instructions in the capstone course should be better aligned with the task that has been presented.
