MSDA students take this course during their second semester at SJSU. Silicon Valley domain experts and industry leaders are invited to the class each week to present their case studies and propose industry project topics for students. After completing this class, students can potentially connect with Silicon Valley experts and work on real-world master’s degree projects (DATA 298A and 298B) in the following two semesters. Students also may have the opportunity to seek internships by connecting with Silicon Valley companies.
An admitted student must take at least one course in Fall 2018 in order to keep his/her student status. However, an F-1 student must take all 3 courses to keep the visa status.
In order to accommodate working and international students, the current schedule for Fall 2018 is:
BUS 243: In-person, from 6:00 pm to 8:45 pm on Mondays, starting August 27
DATA 296: In person, from 6:00 pm to 8:45 pm on Thursdays, starting August 23

The MSDA program does not currently have an accelerated option, that would allow you to complete the program in less than 4 semesters.
It will be announced in the Schedule section.
