This immersive “living and learning” experience will be organized around job-shadowing opportunities with alumni at companies like Tesla, Genentech, IDEO and more. The experience will also include reflection dinners and career conversations with other select alumni. Students will travel and live together as a cohort and attend an Innovation Summit as part of the experience.
