Innovate|LA is a residential summer certificate program in Collaborative Innovation for visiting undergraduates.

Employers today look for more than a major and a GPA. They want new hires to bring an innovation toolkit: confidence in their own creativity, the ability to collaborate efficiently, and familiarity with the process of innovation.

Innovate|LA positions you for success in the new economy. It's an extraordinary chance to distinguish your resume, authenticate your creative spirit, and transfer up to ten credits back to your home institution, all while exploring Los Angeles throughout an unforgettable four weeks.

Who should apply?

Innovate|LA is designed for students currently enrolled in a four-year undergraduate degree program, but it's not designed for a particular major because innovation is essential in every field. If your career goals include becoming a dynamic leader within a vibrant organization, Innovate|LA is for you.


All applications received by Monday, March 23rd will be considered for the first round of acceptance decisions, which will be announced no later than Friday, March 27th. If spots in the program remain available, we will then continue with a rolling process of admissions until we reach a maximum of 25 total students.
