    UX/UI Bootcamp Changed My Life

    I thought I was going to learn some "new skills" so I could just apply for designer jobs. Boy - I was wrong. Not only was this the hardest thing I have ever done scholastically, it was also the most rewarding. I truly had no idea what I was in for - I thought I would just be "creating" but what I do know now is becoming a UX/UI designer in this course has levelled me up.

    My teachers were amazing, especially our TA Laura. Christina was also someone who will make t...

    Amazing Educators and Learning Experience

    An amazing support and education team! I came in to this bootcamp with prior knowledge around Python and web development yet I was still able to take my skills to a level I could never have done by myself.

    Detailed and Engaging

    Junyi Wang was a great teacher and carried us through the data analytics process from beginning to end, from data gathering and initial exploratory analysis in Excel, through working with large datasets, more detailed analysis in SQL and conveying these finding in Tableau in a clear and professional manner. I have no doubt this will help me going forward in working in data, or taking these skills into another industry. Could not recommend enough. The Brainstation campus and facilities ar...

    Great course that covers major marketing leadership themes

    I took this course as a way to familiarize myself with modern marketing leadership strategies, themes and frameworks. As someone who's transitioning to a leadership role, it was valuable to learn and discuss the course material with experienced instructors and professionals. The course did a good job tackling some major themes I was interested in such as success measurement, and strategies to formulating a strong marketing vision.

    Highly recommended as a complementary skill for your Product Management career

    I recently completed the UX Design Certification at BrainStation. 
    Most of my peers were interested in a career in UX design, and I think this was a great first step for them. 
    My objective was to learn about UX Research and Design as well as the use of Figma as complementary skills for my career as a Product Manager. 
    The course exceeded my expectations, both in terms of quality and structure of the curriculum, and the outstanding instructors leading it. 
    Highly recommended!...

    Productive and fulfilling

    I have been in the tech industry for many years.  I understand many concepts through experience, but I have to say that it felt good to sit down and pay attention in class.  Even though we were a small group, we shared and learned from our instructor and from one another.  Scott Weinreb has thoroughly gone thru all modules of the class and has done an excellent job at explaining and taking the time to teach while using his own professional experience.  I can honestly say that I walk away...

    Great foundational skills!

    I came to this course at Brainstation looking to build some foundational skills in SQL and Tableau in particular, and that's exactly what I got.  I feel I got 100% of what I was looking for to be able to go out and put these things into practice to build my skillset and a portfolio.  It also gives me a new understanding and appreciation for the data analytics work at my current company and how to interact with that team better now because of my understanding of these programs.  The instr...
