“Penn State Great Valley provides international students with front-line, hands-on professional education. I engaged with professors and other students who are working in the financial field. The campus is located outside of Philadelphia in the Great Valley Corporate Center where students have access to renowned financial firms like Vanguard, SEI, and others. My Penn State education made it possible for me to secure a position as a long-term contractor with Vanguard, which may not have been possible had I attended any other institution."

“Coming to Penn State Great Valley for my master’s degree in Software Engineering was a good choice. I got the chance to explore different fields of technology and grow both professionally and academically. During the program, I was exposed to diverse opportunities and I made sure I capitalized on every single one. Working with professors to design and develop course modules for the upcoming Mobile Computing course made me understand the intricacy of academia. My overall experience has been positive and worthwhile. I am excited to be a part of the Blue and White Society and a proud Penn Stater!”
