Internships

If you successfully complete the Entrepreneurship or Startup Management certificate—or both—you can start working through a three-month internship at a leading San Francisco or Silicon Valley company!

  • Put your newfound skills to work
  • Gain work experience
  • Build connections
  • Expand your network

You'll see firsthand how a U.S. business runs, giving you a competitive edge when you're ready to land a full-time position in Entrepreneurship or Startup Management.

Optional Practical Training (OPT)

Optional Practical Training is an opportunity for those studying in the United States with an F-1 visa to apply their knowledge with practical work experience. If you successfully complete both the Entrepreneurship and Startup Management certificates, you'll be eligible to apply for paid temporary work authorization in the U.S., also known as Optional Practical Training (OPT).

Imagine yourself learning how to best pitch your company idea. Receiving industry insights into your business plan. Being mentored by successful entrepreneurs and business founders.

With OPT, you can apply everything you've learned to real-world projects and gain valuable work experience.
