Global Residency 

Developing a global mindset is a required skill for today’s technology leaders. This course provides a real-world, hands-on experience that focuses on technology trends and business opportunities, and challenges outside the U.S. market. You’ll learn to assess technology innovation and management from a global business perspective. 

During the virtual Global Residency, you’ll study the culture, history, geography, and current business trends in a country outside the United States. You’ll participate in business meetings and interact with C-level executives, technology leaders, and government officials.

Capstone Project

You must complete the non-credit Capstone to graduate. You’ll work in teams, using your creativity, problem-solving, and diverse skills to develop a technology innovation that may address a solution to a business problem or other creative need. 

The capstone builds on the program’s learning experiences to culminate in a final business plan. This business plan is presented to a capstone board consisting of a panel of technology executives who serve as judges. Many past capstone projects have resulted in funding and/or successful business opportunities. The capstone has become a hallmark of the program.
