This eight week program will be offered to a group of twenty students from Regional Technical Colleges throughout the island of Ireland. This program offers high achieving students an opportunity to visit the US, while linking their backgrounds in technology with management skills. This innovative program will provide internships within the technology industry as well as an academic component at the Boston College School of Management. The academic component will complement the work already being pursued by the participants in Ireland. Expertise for this unique program will be drawn from Boston College as well as area institutions with specialized resources in technology, particularly the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) Small Business Development Forum.
