Student's Experience


Participants get a mentor from IXL Center. Your mentor will teach innovation methodologies and drive you to excellence

Get trained and certified and an Innovation Associate (Level 1) by the Global Innovation Management Institute

The experience and training has a major impact on your career, many actually get jobs with their IO sponsor.

Have you ever created a concept worth $150 million? A team in the program has, for a financial industry sponsor... perhaps you can too? 

Forget the prize money ($4000 for winners & $2000 for runner up). It's all about bragging rights and your school's reputation!
