The Silicon Valley Experience

Michigan Tech’s Silicon Valley Experience, a trip offered each year during Spring Break, is your chance to see real business in action—in a place that has become home to some of the world’s largest corporations: Fortune 1000 companies, software giants, high-tech startups, and more.

When you join a group of fellow School of Business and Economics students on a immersive adventure into the heart of the technological business world. You’ll have the opportunity to:

  • Tour companies like Meraki/Cisco, Autodesk, Porter Vineyard, Netflix, Apple, Ford, Brocade and Clair as well as recent Michigan Tech alumni startup companies Skymind and Handshake
  • Meet with entrepreneurs and innovators
  • Talk with Michigan Tech alumni who are leaders in their field
  • Get answers to your real-world business and leadership questions
  • Gain firsthand experience of the enterprises that are revolutionizing global business
