Alex Tenn

Associate at BlackRock

"iX encouraged me to brainstorm an app to address a problem for which I had no previous background with and no operational know-how. As a mechanical engineering major at Yale, I had been exposed to technology and several programming languages but had never been encouraged to develop my own ideas into products."

Cameron Cross

Consultant at Bain & Co, HBS MBA candidate

"Reflecting on my recent interview experiences, I can point to 3 major reasons that iX is beneficial to aspiring young professionals of almost any career: You have the chance to learn and live a remarkably productive and healthy lifestyle; you will craft uniquely interesting and memorable stories for interviews; you will learn from brilliant and talented students, lecturers, and staff."

Bridget Scott

Digital Product Analyst at American Express

"The Product Management class could not have been more personally tailored to my needs: the ideal blend of marketing, psychology, tech, art, and business. I pitched ideas, fine-tuned my public speaking skills, and developed a product up to a high-fidelity clickable wireframe. It is definitely one of the most informative and enriching classes I have taken throughout my entire academic career."

Choose Cape Town or Costa Rica.

Cape Town

Rated as one of the best cities in the world, Cape Town is built around a breath taking, biodiverse landscape. It's the perfect place to learn and explore, with a low cost of living, rich history, diverse culture, and endless adventure from sunrise to sunset.

Jacó, Costa Rica

A dream destination in the Puntarenas region, our Jaco campus is the only beachfront accommodation in town. Designed to reflect an authentic Costa Rica experience, our campus is surrounded by Miro’s Mountain, walking distance from the town’s main street, and close to a whole host of natural attractions.
