    Overwhelming, all-inclusive

    Overall I believe the course tried to cover too much in too short a period of time for students to really learn the skills taught in class. I think this is great exposure for someone new to data, but this course is better for someone with previous experience with SQL and Tableau. The topics covered are relevant, but I recommend focusing on mastering fundamentals more and on advanced topics less. The instructors are knowledgeable, and where I believe most of the value in the course lies. ...

    Great course and experience

    I loved my Data Science course experience at Brainstation. The teacher (Makk) was an industry professional who provided some great advice and explained things well. I felt like I picked up far more than I expected I would in only 8 weeks. The campus is also really cool and in a great location - highly recommend!

    Great overview of product management principles

    My goal in taking this course was to learn more about product management because I was wondering if I should take my career in that direction. I feel that my goals were met. With only a three-hour meeting time once a week for eight weeks, there is only so much material that we could cover, and I knew that going in. That being said, we got a good overview of:
    • A day in the life of a product manager
    • The role of a product manager throughout the lifecycle of a product, ...

    Data Analytics Course Review

    If you're on the fence about enrolling in Brainstation's Data Analysis course, let me offer a gentle nudge in that direction based on my recent experience.

    The course offers a well-crafted curriculum that's perfectly aligned with current industry standards. The breadth and depth of topics covered from topics in Advanced Excel to SQL, R, and Python, these are not just theoretical fillers but actionable skills. What you learn here is instantly transferable to real-world applications...

    Great Crash Course on Digital Marketing!

    This class was a great introduction to the fundamentals of digital marketing! It provides a breadth of information of the field, which is exactly what i was looking for since i don’t have experience in digital. 

    While it won’t make you an expert on any one thing in particular, it provides you enough to know what you could potentially be interested. 

    Jake is also super passionate about the course and helping his students which is a huge plus! He’s very knowledgeable and will...

    UX/UI Design with Alberto Minelli @BrainStation

    Alberto's course was truly enlightening. UX isn't about us—it's about understanding and serving our users. With Alberto at the helm, each lesson feels like an engaging conversation on design rather than mere technical jargon. He brings the human aspect to the forefront, emphasising that behind every design is a real person. Through immersive projects and compelling anecdotes, the learning journey becomes more experiential. And Alberto's exceptional teaching skills elevate the entire expe...

    Intensive but rewarding

    Having no experience in developing, I came out with very good foundational skills from BrainStation. As my title says, it is intensive but rewarding. I committed a lot of my time in to learning and building my skills.  Although it was stressful at certain points of time, I had fun. It was something I've always wanted to do and to be able to create a full-stack application is mind-blowing to me. I never would have thought I would gain these skills within 3 months but here I am.
