Pairing business, technology and creativity, our students come to the heart of Silicon Valley to deepen and grow their passions. The result? A skilled and dynamic community with a social life that is surprisingly robust.
Silicon Valley culture is known for attracting top talent, increasing competitiveness and promoting creativity. USV faculty live, eat and breathe collaboration; they don't just use the sophisticated technology you'll be exposed to in the classroom, they help build it. This provides our students access to brand new ideas, emerging tech and the world's best talent.
Most of your classes at USV will have around 14 students. This means you'll have the chance to ask questions, participate in discussion and really get a handle on what you're learning. Having a professor who actually knows who you are, cares about your success and is ready to collaborate with you will allow you to get a custom education catered to your individual strengths.
USV is uniquely poised to offer a meaningful and valuable education for 21st century students. Our location and our connection to partners in Silicon Valley give our students seeking a career in creative technology a competitive edge. Our expert faculty include working professionals from dynamic industries right here at home. Our small class sizes average less than 14 students per professor, allowing students access to faculty who are determined to share with them what it means to discover, learn and persevere. It's this rare combination of being in the right place at the right time with the right people that drives our students' success now in their academic studies as well as in their future as working professionals.
