Bridging the Gap Between Education & Application
Traditional graduates often feel disconnected after completing their MBA program. They get stuck because:
Lack of Application
They didn’t get to apply any theory learned in the classroom.
They spent all their time simply memorizing facts and not using any of it.
They studied endlessly for exams that have no real-world application.
Student Loan Debt
They’re burdened with tens of thousands of dollars in debt with no results…
CiAM is different.
We help students mend the disconnect between the classroom and their careers by providing a simple framework that allows them to work with local businesses, create value and obtain new skills. Experiential learning has helped hundreds of students move from doubting themselves to thriving leaders.
