The student will be allocated to a mentor or a team leader who will guide him/her throughout the internship.
ELECTIVE COURSES (6 CREDITS):

3. The courses take place throughout the week (Sunday – Thursday), usually in the afternoon, over the course of two semesters.
5. The third and last semester (summer semester) is a very special and practical mode of study. The summer semester — actually one intensive program of only 8 weeks —is called Trans-disciplinary Innovation Program – TIP. The course includes training workshops, interactive group discussions with experienced angel investors and VCs, behind-the-scenes tours of emerging startups, on-site visits to major technology companies and, as part of a final project, an opportunity to actually pitch ideas to a panel of real investors.
