Partners | Case Study

Developing innovators of the future with Microsoft.


Our partnership with Microsoft has extended through various engagements, including speaking at conferences, consulting on real-world problems, and summer internships.



Investing in top-talent.


"I'm looking for experience like The Knowledge Society gives. If kids have that, it tells me they have the mindset, the characteristics, and the grit to succeed in the corporate environment."
- Lia De Cicco-Remu, Microsoft

We had the TKS students work on real products, extending from using Azure Machine Learning, to AI chatbots. In every project they came through, they actually delivered!"
Ahmed Adel, Microsoft

How does Microsoft benefit from the partnership?


TKS students work on a variety of high priority projects and initiatives with Microsoft. In one project, students evaluated Microsoft's AI School and provided detailed feedback on strategic direction, product experience, and growth strategy. In another project, students built a chatbot using machine learning techniques to enhance customer service. Students have also keynoted at Microsoft conferences, including Microsoft Inspire in Las Vegas, where the TKS students received standing ovations from the audience! Overall, Microsoft has provided young ambitious students with experiences that will accelerate their ability to significantly impact the world, while developing deep relationships with top talent of the future.


How do students benefit from working with Microsoft?


The experiences Microsoft provided to TKS students has completely changed their life. They have networked with executives from across the world, keynoted at large conferences on behalf of Microsoft, and had the opportunity to work on high priority initiatives within the organization. This is an experience that most people never get in a lifetime. Microsoft's deep commitment to invest in young ambitious students is shaping them into pioneers who will solve big problems and influence the next generation.
