In Case You Missed It - Upcoming Immersions
Gies Online would like to share an update on the upcoming virtual immersions schedule. Due to faculty scheduling conflicts, we are unable to host the virtual immersion on July 13-26, 2022. However, we are thrilled to announce that Gies Online is headed to Seattle! Mark your calendars for an in-person immersion on August 2-6, 2022

Seattle has become a hub for innovation and technological advancement in many different sectors. However, with such rapid growth, Seattle currently faces many socio-economic challenges as it learns to keep pace with their recent economic boom.  This 3-day/4-night immersion is designed to immerse Gies iDegree students in Seattle’s business climate, focusing heavily on one industry and business challenge. 

In this highly interactive course, Gies students will work in teams to solve a current business challenge for a Seattle-based business. You will also meet and learn from multiple stakeholders across different companies within metropolitan Seattle. And lastly, you will have plenty of time to network with your iDegree classmates!  We hope you’ll consider joining us, save the dates on your calendar, and stay tuned for more details towards the end of May.
