Silicon Valley

In January 2019 the destination of the International Study Trip was Silicon Valley, California, U.S., home of companies that have built their success on big data, like Google, eBay, Facebook and Apple.

The programme offered insight into the nature of business in this leading hub for high-tech innovation and development. Students got the unique opportunity to personally experience the transformative power of big data and learn from real life cases.
