Innovation Sprint Spotlights
Prepared for wherever your passion takes you.
We develop innovation experiences. The focus is on immersive projects throughout the year-long MSIM program. You take what you learn in small seminars and apply it to solve real-world problems. All under expert guidance, where it’s safe to learn from mistakes. Collectively, all three Innovation Sprints will add tangible evidence to your resume for your job search, demonstrating your skills at identifying and driving innovation.
As important as technical skills are, it will be ever more important to rally others around a vision. When you graduate from the MSIM program, you’ll be able to push forward what you’re trying to accomplish because you’ve experienced what it means to be a leader.
