Andre Koo Technology & Entrepreneurship MBA students participate in the West Coast Immersion course - an intensive style 3 credit course designed to immerse students in the West Coast tech ecosystem. Experiences and class sessions are developed with the below goals in mind:
Expose students to the dynamics of industries driven by technological innovation, and to train students to think strategically about technological innovation and new product development and deployment;
Understand what makes the West Coast a unique hub for technological innovation (and how it may or may not differ from New York City);
Learn how existing legacy, mature or startup technology firms scale operations or incubate new business ideas.
The course includes course lectures, corporate engagements, guest speakers, an experiential learning project, and cultural events.
The West Coast Immersion is a required component of the Tech MBA program, and only students in the Tech MBA program are eligible to participate. Current students will receive more information throughout the program.
