Silicon Valley: Spring Break Opens Up Doors to Your Future

In spring 2011, 15 students traveled from Michigan Tech in Houghton, Michigan to the world hub of start-ups and entrepreneurs—Silicon Valley. This eye-opening experience focused on immersing students in real companies, with real players, and the current challenges they face.

This year, you can go to Silicon Valley during Spring Break (March 5 – 10). Visiting with entrepreneurs, inventors, managers and companies including Brocade, Cisco, and Google will provide you with a first-hand understanding of technology built enterprises that are revolutionizing global business.

The cost is currently set at $975 per person including airfare, hotel accommodations with breakfast each morning and transportation throughout the duration of the trip. The School of Business and Economics is seeking financial support to reduce the cost of this experience and will update http://bit.ly/siliconvalley2012 as more information becomes available. Students also have the option of taking this trip for course credit.

Scholarship Opportunity for this trip is now available, go to Silicon Valley for $300!

This trip is open to all Michigan Tech students. Please pass the information along. If you are interested in participating, please email Tanya Maki, tanya@mtu.edu. Your name will also be placed on the information list [silicon-valley-l] or you can subscribe yourself.
