Innovation Projects

During the fourth quarter, students participate in Medill's pioneering Innovation Projects, working in immersive team settings to solve real problems in the media industry. In just 11 weeks, students learn everything that goes into successful media product development. Working in teams, students conduct consumer research, create new products and services and build a business plan.

The final projects are presented to journalism and media leaders who look to Medill for innovative ideas and enterprising students.

"The Innovation Project takes you beyond journalism and gives students a comprehensive here's-what-you-need-to-know about working after Medill."
