Curriculum

Although the exact schedule of courses/milestones is personalized based on a students’ prior background, a typical program of study for students entering the program in Fall semester is as follows. This program is developed based on the assumption that the student has the required background in Business, Calculus, and Programming. This program could be appropriately tailored to specific student’s needs. Students can substitute one course for another provided they give proper justification as to why such substitution is important for their academic goals.

Year 1 and 2 and possibly in year 3
