The San Francisco and Cincinnati StartupMiamiOH Digital Innovation Programs are an opportunity for students to get real-world experience during their time at Miami while also receiving class credit. During the program, students will spend four days a week at an internship, one day a week visiting local startups and companies, continued networking with alumni and business leaders in their respective city, and also complete a unique client-focused senior capstone project.

This immersive program is ideal for students who want a full-time experience outside of the summer internship season and who want to increase the number of connections they have prior to post-graduate job searching. These students are all ahead of their peers after participating, and keeping in contact with coworkers and new connections in either Cincinnati or San Francisco can mean a leg up for a full-time job.
