On April 30th, 2018, Bachelor of Commerce, Marketing students traveled to Miele Canada headquarters to deliver their Capstone presentations to an audience of Miele executives and Humber faculty. The presentations were the culmination of the students' Capstone course, taught by Dr. Youssef Youssef. The purpose of the presentations was for the students to work in two teams to develop a strategic marketing plan for Miele Canada that would aim to increase Miele's market share in the Canadian market.
