API prides itself on including as much as possible in our program fees to make sure that you have a full and rewarding experience. Here’s a quick list of the most common pieces we include in an API virtual lab experience:
Community-building activities and cultural resources in a digital learning workspace
API Digital Badge Stack: Global Innovation, Global Problem Solving, and Global Teamwork
Career readiness materials and support, including how to reflect this experience on a resume and at job interviews
Live events featuring speakers, activities, networking and more
Access to API alumni network & API Ambassador Program
API’s Innovation Lab offers you the opportunity to work with a team of 4-6 peers to build essential skills of cross-cultural teamwork and collaboration, concept design, and to develop innovative business solutions to global challenges.
Understand global problems that need solving, like poverty, gender equality, and climate action - among many others - for a healthier and happier world. Your work will result in a pitch deck and investment proposal of a viable business model that you will present in a virtual boardroom.
Why Choose API?
Within the supportive environment of the API programs, API participants are encouraged to explore their host communities and become increasingly independent and confident in their own abilities. We strive to make international educational experiences accessible to as many participants as possible, and, as such, work to provide multiple program components at a low program cost.
“The experience of creating a nearly full-blown business plan, the opportunity to learn from the keynote speakers, and the ability to work with a team from around the world are extremely unique when compared with anything that can be experienced in a typical university class.”
