Join the MIT Entrepreneurship Club and alumni-founded Futures Forge this IAP to practice the skills needed to be a successful entrepreneur or professional!

Science tells us there are a few key attributes and skills that drive almost all job performance and career success, whether as an employee or entrepreneur. And they probably aren’t taught in your classes. How do you improve your grit, adaptability, team leadership, motivation, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills? Sign up to find out!

Integrated Challenge-Driven Learning

No lectures! Lead your team through rapid learning and experimentation to complete challenges, competing and learning from other teams:

Operate a logistics system to get at least 40 "special sodas" to thirsty Engineers! Get a budget and build the best (small) roller coaster you can! Redesign lame consumer products and pitch your new products to “investors!” 

What You’ll Learn

  • What skills & attributes really make the difference in your career (and why)?
  • Where are you strongest in these?
  • How can you develop them quickly?
  • How do you apply them in college and your career?
  • AND… learn some of the secrets to accelerated personal growth!
