There is no limit on the number of City Seminars you can attend, but some timings will overlap so you would not be able to attend all of them in one summer. You would also need to consider your schedule, visa applicability, and associated travel costs.
Seminars are typically one week of fully immersive class sessions, local site and industry visits, guest speakers, events and networking, and more. Each city seminar typically also has pre-departure and post-seminar virtual sessions to prepare and debrief the week before students travel and after they return. So in total, the seminars occur over a few weeks:
City Seminars are considered two-credit elective courses. Students register for City Seminars at the same time as their summer elective course registration. Students are required to complete coursework, teamwork, and assessments, and attend interactive class sessions while attending the seminars, similar to all elective courses.
Students are responsible for any travel, flight, visa and accommodation costs for City Seminars. City Seminar courses also typically come with an associated fee (max up to 500 USD per city seminar) to cover costs such as registration fees, group transportation, site visits, and other associated costs for the seminar.
City Seminars typically have a lower enrollment capacity than other elective courses. This is to ensure a smaller “seminar” class format and to ensure the group is a feasible size for traveling together and taking on site visits to local businesses. Typically, City Seminars are capped at a 25-35 student enrollment capacity. Students register for these on a first-come, first-serve basis when summer elective course registration opens to current students in February/March. City Seminars to tend to fill up quickly, but enrollment remains open until filled or a few weeks prior to the course when all flights and visas must be in place.
*City seminar enrolment capacities and offerings are subject to change.
Locations for City Seminars are subject to change each summer. Current students are made aware of applicable City Seminar offerings for the upcoming summer during registration. An elective interest survey is sent to current students during the fall term to gauge interest in coming electives, rotations, specializations, and City Seminars for the upcoming summer term which is also taken into account.
Students are able to go into a completely different context and learn something very different.
