The Global Technology Innovation Practicum

Partnering with Georgia Tech’s Creative Destruction Lab (CDL-Atlanta) and the CDL Recovery initiative,  The Global Technology Innovation Practicum builds on the fundamentals of Scheller College’s TI:GER® (Technology Innovation: Generating Economic Results) program while narrowing its focus to innovating for the Covid-19 crisis.

A select cohort of Scheller College’s graduate students work on this international project whose aim is to make a global impact in resolving the coronavirus pandemic.

Creative Destruction Lab

The CDL Recovery Initiative & TI:GER® Program

The Creative Destruction Lab is an international program for the commercialization of early-stage science. It has launched a new global initiative, CDL Recovery, in response to the global pandemic and seeks to partner leading scientists’ Covid-19 solutions with business applications and venture funding to accelerate delivering those critical solutions to the world market.

TI:GER,® Scheller College’s immersive track in Strategy and Innovation, is a unique, transdisciplinary program that prepares MBA students for careers in technology innovation. TI:GER coursework emphasizes innovation-based live case studies and developing the observation, decision-making, and analytical skills those cases demand. TI:GER® students emerge well-trained to effectively partner with business start-ups and add value to fledgling businesses.

The Global Technology Innovation Practicum

TThe Global Technology Innovation Practicum partners the interdisciplinary expertise of Georgia Tech MBA and PhD students with the challenges identified by the CDL Recovery initiative.

By partnering TI:GER® with the CDL Recovery program, TI:GER’s® methodologies and practicum casework will concentrate on the sciences as they address public health and economic recovery. The end goal is an acceleration of solutions to the multitude of challenges currently emerging from the Covid-19 crisis.

Because the practicum’s coursework directly and immediately responds to the global pandemic, the  partnership with CDL and the dual emphasis in human health and global economy is an unprecedented opportunity for students enrolled in The Global Technology Innovation practicum. Student opportunities include interacting directly with scientists, entrepreneurs, investors, and mentors around the world. These industry experts contribute critical momentum to the CDL Recovery and TI:GER®  practicum endeavors while seeking technology innovation solutions for a global problem.


The Global Technology Innovation Practicum is headed by Jonathan Giuliano, Executive Director & Academic Director of Scheller College’s TI:GER program and  Academic Lead for CDL-ATL.
