Immersive, Targeted Approach to Career Transition
BreakLine Tech is designed to help you pivot into your career in technology. The program provides a combination of classroom learning with distinguished faculty, in-depth discussions with industry leaders, and hands-on group project work designed in collaboration with our corporate partners. You will get an inside view into leading tech organizations while building your professional network.
Faculty from top universities will teach you business fundamentals, including accounting, economics, finance, marketing, operations, and strategy. With this foundation in business, you can translate and leverage your experience with your future employers and colleagues.
Executives from our partner companies will lead sessions on organizational design, talent management, culture, and expected future trends. These sessions will give you insight into the tech industry and help you determine where you can make the biggest impact.
The group projects are an opportunity to apply what you learn in the classroom to actual business challenges. At the end of the program, each team will present their findings to a panel of tech executives for feedback. By exploring and solving real-world problems, you will deepen and enhance your understanding of this fast-moving industry.
Breakliners receive mentorship from industry executives who provide guidance on everything from group project work to communications and style to career opportunities.
