Alumni Salaries


An internship is strongly recommended, but not required, for full-time MSDS students. Students typically participate in a summer internship after their first academic year in the program. Some students choose to take advantage of our convenient evening courses to complete an internship during the academic year.

Our students intern at top companies and not-for-profits throughout the Seattle area and beyond. Some internships have led to full-time job offers. Organizations where MSDS students have obtained summer internships include Allstate, Amazon, Apple, Bazean, Capitol One, Clobotics, Discover, Facebook, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Google, Microsoft, Nike, Walmart, and more.
