How XN Works

How It Works

The Experiential Network’s intentionally designed project experiences empower graduate and professional learners to integrate and apply their learning and development in a real-world professional setting, similar to gig-economy work experiences within the context of and aligned with an academic course.

These short-term projects help students apply their skills to solve problems with real parameters and constraints that deliver real value to project sponsors. Students complete projects remotely and typically work 30-40 hours on a project over approximately six weeks. Projects are scoped and evaluated by sponsors with assistance from the XN staff, who provide the administrative and operational support for the academic programs and the student participants.
