Best 6 Week Internship Abroad Program!

I joined the iX Management Consulting Abroad program this past summer in Cape Town, South Africa. Since returning to the United States, I realized that it was the best way I could have spent my summer! I loved the diverse cohort of students from various universities and I made so many new friends. Also, the weekly cultural excursions taught me about my surroundings and gave me new areas to explore. The industry expert who taught my course was incredible and she has continued to help me with my recruiting efforts since coming back to the U.S. My internship with a fantastic local startup gave me great work experience to add to my resume and leverage in future job interviews. Overall, I would highly recommend iX’s programs to those who want to pursue a unique, non-traditional internship while prioritizing a fun summer with travel!

iX Cape Town Review

Had an absolutely amazing time here. While the bootcamp was definitely fast-paced, the instructors did not overwhelm us with homework and allowed us to have the time and opportunity to explore the city and culture. The instructors themselves were all super knowledgeable and top notch. One of them had their own firm and another was from McKinsey. Internship wise, I had the opportunity to work with a former co-founder of Google and someone who was on the Forbes 30 under 30 so it was truly an amazing experience.

  • Good Teachers
  • Great and unique cultural experinece
  • A little short in my opinion. I wish the program would have lasted 8 weeks instead of 6

Best Summer Experience

Cape Town is probably one of the best cities in the world for college students to explore. There is so much to do outdoors, socially, culturally, there is something unique to do each and every day. Couple that with a great internship experience, which provides excellent career building skills and resume boosters, and you have iXperience. iXperience truly created something so great for college students who want a study abroad experience, while also something professionally advancing. Additionally, you create so many new friendships that last a lifetime.

iXperience Summer 2023 Review

I had an amazing time at iXperience Cape Town this summer. Besides the academic and professional aspects, iXperience also offered many opportunities to explore Cape Town and its culture. I enjoyed surfing, hiking, visiting Cape Point, and trying out different cuisines. The city is beautiful and vibrant, and there is always something to do. I also made some lifelong friends from around the world, who shared my passion and curiosity. We had a blast together and supported each other throughout the program.

Cape Town was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience that helped me grow personally and professionally. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn new skills, work on meaningful projects, and have an unforgettable adventure.

Highly recommended

My six-week journey with iXperience in Cape Town was undoubtedly one of the most exhilarating and transformative experiences of my life. Meeting a diverse group of extraordinary individuals who share similar passions in such a short span of time was a revelation. The connections I formed with other students exceeded my expectations, and go beyond just professional networking.

The academic program and internship I engaged in providing me with invaluable knowledge and industry insights. My instructor and teaching assistants were unwaveringly supportive and resourceful throughout the entire six weeks. Thanks to this program, I feel significantly better prepared for the corporate world.

One of the most delightful surprises during this journey was the relationships I formed the iXperience staff. They went above and beyond to ensure that we, the students, had the most exceptional experience possible. Their willingness to provide career guidance and assistance with our internships whenever needed was truly commendable.

Reflecting on this incredible experience, I can honestly say that I can't imagine a more rewarding way to have spent my summer. I firmly believe that iXperience offers something of value to everyone. Whether it's the professional skills you acquire, the exploration of a new city, the forging of lifelong friendships, or even facing and conquering your fears, like taking that leap of faith by skydiving, I'm confident that this program holds something transformative for all. I wholeheartedly endorse iXperience and sincerely hope that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy it as much as I did.

iXperience- Cape Town 2022

There is no other program I would recommend more than iXperience. It was the absolute best 6 weeks of my life being in Cape Town. It is a beautiful city with a never ending list of things to do. One day I was on top of a mountain, the next day I was on a beach with penguins, and the day after I was skydiving. It is truly incredible. Not only did iX offer some of the greatest life experiences to me, but they also provided hands on training from industry professionals. My coursework consisted of learning in depth financial modeling that was presented in a way that made sense by an industry expert. #ExperienceIsEverything

UX/UI iXperience

iXperience Cape Town truly was a life-changing experience. During my six-week stay, I learned so much about myself through introspection with my coach, career exploration at my internship, a hands-on project in class, and interactions with other students in the cohort. It was my first time working closely with people my age in the workface and it helped me really see my strengths and weaknesses. In general, the class and internship showed me a new career path after being confused about what I wanted to do with my life for a VERY long time. It really was what I needed to start this new chapter of my life. I may have had to make the 15-hour trip to Cape Town to do so, but it was soooo worth it and I have no regrets. Cape Town is an absolutely beautiful city with so much to do. Through group excursions, I saw penguins at Boulders Beach, went wine tasting for the first time, got to surf in the Indian Ocean, hiked multiple trails and so much more!! I had the best time exploring the city with people I can truly say I will stay connected with. If you're looking for a productive, yet fun program to complete over the summer, I wholeheartedly suggest iXperience.

iX Cape Town: Absolute Greatest Summer for a college student!

iXperience was quite simply the greatest 6 weeks I have ever had. Cape Town is a stunning city, with so much to do- We could surf before work, climb a mountain after, then play padel or soccer under the lights at night. The staff was incredibly supportive, always suggesting new things to do and often spending their free time helping us see more of the city! The education made me feel very comfortable with the basics of Management Consulting, and Byron, my teacher, was so helpful and consistently met outside of class to discuss the material. Finally, the internship was awesome: I worked for a corporate wellness startup, helping design Mindfulness and DEI courses, doing market research, building a pitch deck, and creating short and long-term strategy plans. Cannot recommend iX enough for a motivated and adventurous student!
