Farley Bay Area Quarter

Innovation and entrepreneurship studies in San Francisco 

Spend winter quarter in Silicon Valley, one of the world’s most significant hubs for technology and startups. Take four classes that count toward the Farley entrepreneurship minor, network with Northwestern alumni, visit early-stage and established companies, and escape Illinois during the coldest months of the year. 

The classes will be uniquely designed to leverage the resources in the Bay Area and therefore will not be duplicates of classes offered in Evanston. 

Who should apply? 

Applications are required for the Farley Bay Area Quarter. Any Northwestern undergraduate student is eligible to apply if they meet at least one of the following requirements: 

*The required Principles of Entrepreneurship class can be taken in the Fall quarter that precedes the program.

Applications for Winter 2023 have closed.

We hope that our pilot Bay Area Quarter program will become an annual offering. Please check back in early 2023 for information on how to apply for the Winter 2024 program!
