- The University of New Haven will partner with data science company Galvanize to offer a master’s degree in San Francisco via a program dubbed "GalvanizeU."
- Galvanize employees will teach the jointly created curriculum as university professors, and students will receive their degree from the University of New Haven, The Chronicle of Higher Education reports.
- The San Francisco location will give students access to top internships and job opportunities in their field, according to the Chronicle.
Galvanize has its own, unaccredited course offerings through gSchool, including one in data science. The partnership with the University of New Haven gives it a window into an accredited program and the chance at a mutually beneficial collaboration. As the Chronicle reports, the CEO of Galvanize launched gSchool in 2013 with expertise about the tech world, not education. The University of New Haven brings that expertise and gets a more business-minded approach to designing and executing a new program. This partnership could bring students the best of both worlds and offers the university a foothold on its opposite coast.
