Alumni stories.

Meet Cody Krause
from UMich.

Attended iX Summer 2022.
Management Consulting Alum Cape Town.


Aspiring Business Analyst.

Keen traveler.

Culturally curious.

Why did you choose iXperience?

I applied to iX because I want to go into the job search with a strong grasp on my chosen field, so that I do not face as big of a learning curve and can thus stand out from fellow applicants.

Furthermore, I want to stay on top of my classes, maintaining a high GPA and keeping as many doors open as possible. iX summer can help me in all these ways: the combination of class sessions and internship experience helps me both learn new material, and also apply it in real-life scenarios.

What impact has the program had on you?

I can live in an amazing place, I can have an amazing job. For those who want it, you can have it all, you can have what you want. iX has shown me that and I’m very grateful.

What's a day in your life like in Cape Town?

Living in Cape Town has shown me literally how much life there is to explore outside of just my job and an office. It’s helped me realize while yes, I’m absolutely going to work hard and I want to build a successful career and that’s a huge priority for me, I also want to prioritize being outside, the ability to have so many friends, the ability to have a huge social network in the city that I live, and have fun.

Favorite moments from Cody's trip.

Cody is now an honourary Cape Town local. He summited mountains, went to an international rugby game (we won!), hiked, and surfed pretty much every day.
