The Silicon Valley Study Tour enables students to explore the field of entrepreneurship and innovation through a highly experiential educational experience combining the in-depth study of creativity and innovation with site visits, and discussions with representatives of some of the world's most innovative companies. Focusing on the cultural and systemic enablers of innovation, students will see first-hand the way in which companies drive creativity and entrepreneurial outcomes. The subject centres around an international tour visiting a range of business entities, including small start-ups, accelerators and co-working spaces, and large multinational firms. The highly collaborative learning environment allows an intense, work-integrated educational experience that may be a highlight of students’ Bond experience.
