In partnership with the University of Washington, Tsinghua University, and Microsoft, we founded the Global Innovation Exchange (GIX) and enrolled the first full cohort of students in 2017. GIX is a revolutionary project-based Technology Innovation graduate and professional education program focused on experiential education and practice to develop leaders in innovation. Students work in cross-disciplinary teams and use design thinking, data science, and entrepreneurship to solve complex, real-world problems from industry partners.
GIX’s interdisciplinary, project-based curriculum brings top faculty and learners from across disciplines and around the world to work in close collaboration with industry partners and leading entrepreneurs from diverse industries. Students learn to take an innovative idea from concept to development and on to launch, creating solutions to global challenges such as health, sustainability, and social equity.
