Accelerate your career
with an internship.

Product Management can be a career in and of itself, or open up loads of possibilities. As PMs become more senior, they manage other PMs and take more responsibility over products or often, entire business divisions. Product Management is also a gateway to starting your own business—if you’ve launched new products with the backing of a company, why can’t you do so for yourself?

After your course, you can do an internship with one of our partner companies to hone your skillset, bolster your resume, and jumpstart your career.

"Being able to build a functional app in a matter of weeks seemed impossible at the start, but iX made it happen for every student. Cape Town is a city that stole my heart and I only wish I could've had more time to be immersed in it longer."

"iXperience was a magical summer that could never be replicated. I was able to sky dive (twice!), bungee jump (twice!), shark cage dive, and sand board for the first time!

"I learned more than I ever imagined, explored one of the most beautiful cities in the world. iX gave me a chance to escape the familiar - I never imagined I would jump off the tallest bungee jumping bridge in the world or get face-to-face with Great Whites.
