A central part of the Institute’s mission is to provide you with immersive, hands-on learning as part of your studies.
Unlike classroom-based graduate programs, our immersive experiences allow you to apply practical skills in your field of study before you graduate. Not only do you gain professional experience, but you are exposed to relevant networking opportunities that often lead to jobs after graduation.
