Personal Growth

We learn more from our failures than we do from our successes. By making mistakes one year and correcting them the next, a student grows and matures as a person.

Allies

alliesStudents develop close friendships with their team leader, team mates, and competitors while learning what it means to work on a winning team. In an culture where a “friend” is often just a click on social networks, students learn to develop meaningful relationships with their peers. With alumni all around the world sharing the common bond of friendship developed during the summer, students enjoy a powerful network of professional connections.
