Nope, you are not obligated to accept an internship of job offer. However, given the demand for any given Accelerator, we do hope that you will only enroll if you have a sincere interest in working for the sponsoring company. In order to keep things fair, we also ask that all enrolled students abstain from accepting any other job offers until 1 month after the program's completion when interviews are complete.
There is no catch! By partnering with leading companies within the industries we serve (consulting and finance), we are able to offer our industry-specific Accelerators at no cost whatsoever to the student. Believe it or not, it's very expensive to recruit on college campuses. By helping reduce the cost-per-hire and expanding the reach of our company partners, we're proud to be in a position to guarantee full scholarships for all students accepted into the program.
