Academics & Schedule

Overview

We create a 1-year, personalized, academic leadership program for you. Whenever possible, we allow you to shape your courses and schedule without having to follow a specific track or academic calendar. You may choose from a list of courses, or create your own program. 

You will also meet periodically with mentors to guide you in your project. Mentors are industry leaders in technology who come from varied backgrounds and industries.

 

Timing

We admit participants on a rolling basis, giving you the flexibility to start the program at your own timeline.
