Faculty from the top world-class schools come together and offer unparalleled expertise and education.

-Nathan Young, Master’s Student at Cornell University, Columbia University

 

I just made 20 new global friends. As we all grow and start different companies and head off in different industries, we will be able to rely on each other and have the great memories we are making right now. The most helpful aspect of the program were the connections I made, but the knowledge is amazing also. I thought I knew how I would one day do business with China but that has completely changed.
