Brendan Tam
Summer Internship

In support of the Vision 2017 goal of Unbounded Learning, the Budget & Risk Management Office offered an internship this summer to an SJSU business student. We were fortunate to find Brendan Tam Tran, a senior working on his B.S. in Business Administration, Finance.

Brendan was a Sbona Honors program student last Fall and Spring, which provided him the opportunity to work with a team of students in a consulting role for Cisco. He performed a similar role for his internship in the Budget & Risk Management Office.

Since early June, Brendan has been analyzing budget performance measures toward developing a data dashboard that can be used to inform the budget planning and management cycle.

Brendan plans to graduate in December, and with his excellent analytical and computer skills, we expect he will be a very successful Spartan.

International Wire Transfers

As many of you know, San Jose State now accepts international wire transfers for payment of tuition, fees and housing for our international students.

We began this program before the start of Fall 2012, much to the excitement of our international student population. Many students have enthusiastically embraced our program and partnership with peerTransfer, the company that facilitates this payment process.

Students initiate the payment online and then take a print-out to their bank to process payment to SJSU. Students save on fees and exchange rates through this process. Once payment has been initiated, the transaction can be tracked, and the student is notified once payment has been made.

Since June 1, 2013, over 350 students have made payments via international wire transfer for a total of over $2 M.

Please help get the word out to our international student population. Visit International Wire Transfer for more information.
