  • We’re in Northern California.
  • In the heart of Silicon Valley
  • Where technology firms flourish: eBay, Adobe, Apple, Facebook, Cisco, Intel, Google orkut “ When large numbers of entrepreneurs, financiers, engineers, designers, and other smart, creative people are constantly bumping into one another inside and outside of work, business ideas are more quickly formed, sharpened, executed, and – if successful – expanded. The more smart people, and the denser the connections between them, the faster it all goes.” Richard Florida, “Where the Brains Are,” The Atlantic Monthly , p.35-36 Octobre 2006 Florida goes on to say that, “The local cultures of most, if not all, means metros [his name for SV type communities] have facilitated the establishment of many loose connections among people of diverse talents, lifestyles and social circles (as opposed to a few tight connections within homogenous groups). They are socially tolerant and open to new ways of thinking. Job switching is common, as is periodic unemployment, and free agents find plenty of common spaces in which to work and meet. The soup is continuously stirred, an newcomers are assimilated easily.” (pp.36, “Where the Brains Are). “ For a variety of historical reasons – the presence of great universities is usually one – the means metros already have a high concentration of highly talented people. And as more such people are added, their multiplier effect on growth seems to keep increasing. That’s true not just for economic growth in the aggregate, but for individual incomes and opportunities as well.” (R. Florida, “Where the Brains Are).
  • 3/16/2001 We’re part of the California State University System
  • The oldest and one of the largest schools in the system
  • We’ve best known for our Engineering, Computer Science and Business schools where students learn the skills that global businesses require.
  • And San Jose is the top ranked city for university study.
  • Our campus is adjacent to the active downtown business and tourist area
  • This location is the perfect starting point for language and culture immersion
  • Here’s a sample schedule for a customized program. The first week introduces the area so you’ll feel at home in the new culture.
  • We encourage students to explore the downtown area. It’s safe, convenient, and filled with interesting museums, restaurants, cafes, and more
  • Students explore the great variety of restaurants with our “Restaurant Passport” which challenges them to step outside and try new tastes.
  • And visit places
