For the past 10+ years, schools around the world have helped their students apply their academic knowledge to real-life business cases through Agorize’s innovation programs.
Whether your teach business, engineering, social sciences, design or any other discipline, we offer innovation programs that are relevant for your students.
It can be a challenge to find real-life case studies that fit into your academic course, keep students engaged throughout the semester, and help them develop transferable and marketable skills. Agorize’s academic integrations answer those needs.
Students develop valuable, marketable skills and connect with company representatives.
Get access to ready-to-use case studies and receive our support throughout the year. You also reduce time on grading students, as you can use industry experts’ evaluations and apply them to assign grades.
Agorize works with schools through academic integrations. With an academic integration, you’ll be able to present students with case studies based on current industry challenges that they can work on. It can be fully integrated into their curriculum.
We will send you the list of available programs and challenges your students could work on the upcoming semester. We will be happy to create custom case studies, ensuring a perfect fit with the course you’re teaching.
The kick-off session is a 30 min/ 1-hour presentation of the challenge to your students to ensure they have all the tools and materials to develop their projects. Company representatives can participate in the session, answering all the questions students might have.
Agorize’s team will onboard students on the platform and incentivize project submissions with prizes and opportunities. We will send you the marks given by the judges to your students’ projects, which you can use as a course grade or simply as a reference.
Academic Integrations are an easy and effective way to give students practical experience within the scope of your course. However, some schools want more. This is where our Academic Innovation Platform offer comes in.
Our Academic Innovation Platform goes one step further than Academic Integrations by allowing your school to run its own innovation programs, facilitating even more connections between students and corporate partners.
This is how our academic partners look back on working with Agorize.
