    Alec Ortiz, iX Alum
    From Stanford
    "iX was an opportunity to grow and discover—to explore a dynamic and captivating place, develop practical technical skills, and leave behind the comfort of the familiar to join a diverse assembly of scholars, artists, and adventurers at the edge of the world."

    Campuses around the world.

    Explore all of the wonders our chosen cities have to offer.

    Breathtaking nature. On the daily.

    Where rustic meets the 21st century.

    Lisbon, Portugal's dynamic capital city, is changing fast. Portugal has seen a huge economic boom in the last decade, with young creatives and global funders reimagining the city, building on what is already there, while retaining the rustic charm and low cost of living.

    Tel Aviv

    The start-up nation at the forefront of innovation.

    Home to over 5000 startups and some of the world's most definitive tech-companies, Tel Aviv offers plenty of opportunities for emerging talent. Combined with its millennia-old history, the city—and others in Israel you'll discover during iX—will continually amaze you.

    Cape Town

    A rainbow nation at the edge of Africa.

    Built around a breathtaking, biodiverse landscape, Cape Town is the perfect place to learn and explore. The cost of living is also much lower than many European, Asian, and American cities, so you'll be able to enjoy of all the culinary, coffee, and adventuring opportunities.


    Europe's edgy city and a hotbed for startups.

    Because of the vibrant, youthful energy, relative low cost of living, and great infrastructure, Berlin has attracted entrepreneurs and futurists who have innovated in the finance, tech, and biotech spaces in particular.

    reported that iXperience improved their career prospects.
    Cameron Cross
    Now: Consultant at Bain & Co.

    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.

    Alex Tenn
    Now: Analyst 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.

    Bridget Scott
    Now: Digital Product Management Intern 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.

    iXperience remote and travel programs are trusted by thousands from top universities.
