The #1 purpose for your time at IGTC is to broaden and deepen your intellectual ability and prepare you for career success. Your goal is to learn, and the time-honoured way to learn a skill or trade is apprenticeship. If you want to be a glass-blower, you would go and study with a master glass-blower. You would follow his movements and try to absorb his knowledge.

At IGTC you benefit from many individuals - the faculty, corporate mentors, and successful alumni who have varied expertise in their fields. You have the chance to apprentice yourselves under those who have done it you are best at, before you innovate and drive business with unique new ideas and methods.
