The i5 program is built around a proven methodology for technology ventures. It is designed to create an environment for students to develop science and technology insight, business savvy and global cultural competence. Students apply for different roles on an i5 team according to their interests and academic qualifications. As an MBA candidate, IP Law student or other post-graduate applicant, you will have the chance to be selected as a project manager for one of the partnering multinational corporations which sponsor the projects and then lead an international team to complete that project. As an undergraduate student with business or engineering background, you will have the chance to work on one of these international projects, gaining in-depth cross cultural experience. Lastly, during your stay in China, you will definitely have the chance to unveil the mystery of Orient.
Since joining in 2010 with the Hankamer School of Business and the Baylor School of Engineering, the Baylor Law School brings yet another dimension to the i5 and TEI programs. Under the supervision of Baylor's Patent Law Professor, David G. Henry, Sr., law students in the law school's Intellectual Property Concentration participate in i5 and TEI projects by helping to identify and create recommendations for seeking legal advice for protecting the sponsors' intellectual property.
Baylor Law School's addition to the i5 and TEI programs benefits all involved. Project sponsors benefit from the identification of potentially valuable assets that might otherwise have gone unnoticed, while the law students benefit through practical application of their academic knowledge of IP law, and the business and engineering students gain exposure to guidance on issues on which their future successes may largely depend.
