Current Career Semester Student
"This program is unlike any other course I have ever taken. From the intimate class size to the weekly material that we learn, this program has changed my career path for the better and I am so excited to begin this new journey."

Gain valuable internship experience.

After your course, you'll be placed in an online internship with teammates from your class. But online doesn't mean disengaged: expect collaboration with your fellow students, check-ins with your manager on a flexible schedule, and exciting real-world work.

From UC Berkeley

Interned at Invictus Capital

"Working at Invictus Capital was both challenging and exciting. I worked on a withdrawal smart contract that will ultimately allow people to interact with the blockchain in a different way. I learned so much in just a week and adjusted to the self motivated structure well."
Camryn Okere

From WashU St Louis

Interned at SoundCloud

"The working environment was young, driven, and collaborative. Once a week, the teams came together to share their work and see how the product and our projects progressed on a large scale. Everyone was also really concerned about us having a good experience."
Rohan Kher

"The workload is really flexible so when I'm super swamped with school I don't feel overwhelmed. But, when I have more free time, I can work on a bonus problem."

See it for yourself.

The most inspiring way to learn online.

Our live courses focus on engagement and community.
Relevant & practical
Your class projects will be connected to industry, in a format that you can show future employers.
You'll have class weekly, along with readings and assignments that will challenge you to learn quickly.
Small class sizes
We cap classes at 30 students, which means you'll get to know your classmates and teachers individually.
We teach engaging, live seminar-style classes—not massive, streamed lectures. Expect lots of discussion and group work.
Frequent feedback
Your lead professor and TAs will review your work and give you actionable feedback to improve.
They'll also provide guidance and support for your internship, helping you achieve more than you could in ordinary working environments.
Andrew Rasetti, Duke University
Current Career Semester Student
"One of my favorite parts of the course has been getting to know my classmates. I really did not expect to get to know anyone on a personal level, but I feel like I genuinely have bonded with the instructors and my classmates and it has been a great experience. Everyone is super friendly, and though I am surrounded by smart people, it is not a particularly high pressure environment."

International impact, without the travel.

Our Online Internship Framework ensures you'll achieve amazing results while working remotely.
Our Online Internships include:
A real-world project that is scoped to your skill set, with deliverables you can add to your resume.
Frequent, structured check-ins with your company manager and a regular cadence of feedback.
Subject-related support from our teaching team, in case you need help along the way.

For your internship, you'll be matched with one of our dozens of international internship partners along with a team of fellow students. You'll work together remotely to solve one of the company's challenges and present your solution to a team of stakeholders.

Unlike many other internships, however, you'll have consistent support from a variety of channels: your manager, our education team, and your peers.

We're committed to improving access to education.

We offer need-based financial aid and scholarships to enable access to our programs.
