Developing innovators of the future with CIBC Digital.
Building meaningful relationships.
"We tasked these students with improving retention and engagement for our credit card products. Within CIBC we've been trying to solve this problem for several years, and these students were able to apply a fresh perspective on this problem and look at it in a completely new way."
- Allison Tse, CIBC Digital
The curiosity of TKS students, combined with the experience and knowledge of the CIBC professionals, brought power to what I believe was an amazing experience."
How does CIBC benefit from the partnership?
This was the first time CIBC partnered with a high school organization. Four TKS students engaged in a summer internship with CIBC digital, where they worked on exciting new initiatives in areas that involved augmented reality and customer engagement. The students presented in front of 400+ employees during the CIBC Digital all-hands meetings and spoke about the work they were doing, as well as their personal projects in blockchain, artificial intelligence, and phage therapy. It was motivating for employees to see how much young people can do, which gave them energy and motivation.
How do students benefit from working with CIBC?
It's great to see the team at CIBC Digital give young people hard problems that add value to the organization."
What a surprise and delight when the TKS students got on board and were already teaching. They were showing their blogs, decks, and TED talks - this was something that was immediately shocking to our team."
