Here’s an announcement from the Innovation Immersion Program that you might be interested in. Contact them for more details.
We are part of an entrepreneurial, student-led technology consulting organization called the Innovation Immersion Program (http://iipillinois.com). We give Illinois students professional networking opportunities and hands-on consulting experience in global technology hubs. Our student consultants work in international teams with students from Israel, Sweden, and Singapore to complete strategy projects for international firms.
We will likely have a booth at the Spring Organization fair next semester, so if you believe your students would be interested in IIP, please feel free to contact us.
Next semester, we will complete consulting projects for major technology firms in Singapore and Taiwan, which includes a Spring Break immersion trip to Singapore and Taiwan for participating students! We are currently recruiting Illinois undergraduate and graduate students from diverse disciplines such as Engineering, Business, Media, and Library Science to join our Spring 2014 consultant teams.
Our application is currently open and can be completed online at https://illinois.edu/fb/sec/1649346. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until November 8th. At that time we will contact applicants for an interview.
To get a glimpse of what it is like to work on our international project teams and participate in an IIP immersion trip, please view our latest video about last year’s Israeli project cycle, which was filmed in Israel: http://youtu.be/96iW6yz-_8w.
