We Are Watson
The Watson Method
Each Watson semester is an intensive fifteen week program in which scholars receive weekly mentorship and coaching sessions, free international legal support (through a partnership with Thomson Reuters), training in the hard skills and frameworks to take their ideas to the next level, and a community of peers that will last far beyond Watson. We aim to be the Olympic training ground for next generation changemakers and you can expect the experience to be both challenging and fun. Below are four key elements of each semester.
“My time at Watson taught me two things: That within me there is an endless source of possibility waiting to happen, and that there are people who fiercely believe in the good in the world and are passionate about making a lasting positive impact, just like me.”Allyson Ann Carpenter, US
“Watson is simply the way of the future for higher education: I walk away with the most meaningful friendships I have in my life, the courage to aim for the sky, the depth of reflection required to live a balanced yet cutting-edge lifestyle, and a renewed vision for my social venture Umbiyozo.”Jason Woolf, South Africa
“Watson is simply the place to be. Although I already have 2 degrees, my experience at Watson far tops any of my previous educational experiences. At Watson, I found the courage to really go for what I want and was able to craft the vision for the future that I want for my life, my community and my country.”Omotola Akinsola, Nigeria
