    Digital Marketing Excellence

    This course was an excellent and comprehensive overview of Digital Marketing. From content strategy to SEO and social media, we learned it all. The instructors were truly exceptional and brought great industry knowledge to each session for better understanding of the course content by giving real word examples. Also the course content is broken down in a really organized way. There was time for live demos and for students to demo things like the google keyword planner on our own. I recom...

    Good intro to product management!

    I completed the online product management course over 10 weeks in beginning of 2021. Brainstorm has an amazing learning platform that made it very easy and accessible to take the course online. 
    The instructors were very engaging and had a lot of professional experience and wisdom working as PMs. The course was interesting, informative and clearly thought out to make it as good of an experience for the group as possible. It shows! The content was put to practice through the final proj...

    Digital Marketing Course

    I took the 10-week Digital Marketing Course which focused on many aspects of the industry from SEO, SEM, Analytics, Google Ads and all of the most popular social channels. It was a great way for me to refresh on things I already knew but view them under new eyes. It offers a broad stroke to anybody new to the industry or looking to grow confidence in this segment. If you are more analytically inclined look at the more focused course they offer for that.

    Product Management Course

    Extremely satisfied with the teaching methods and outcome from the 10 week Product Management course at Brainstation. The course instructors were actual professional practitioners of Product Management and that they used a lot of real life examples from the industry or their own personal experience as Product Managers which really helped drive home the point. 

    Absolutely recommend the Product Management course from Brainstation for someone wanting to move into this area or is alre...

    Data Science (Part-Time)

    The part-time data science course offered by BrainStation was overall a great experience. With only a brief overview of Python, it is recommended that you already have a solid foundation of Python as the course dives into more complex topics later in the course.  It's a great overview for understanding data science however this one course on its own will not make you a data scientist.  Highly recommend for anyone who wants to improve their Python skills, and start to understanding the wo...

    Data Analytics

    The BrainStation Data Analytics class is the perfect introduction to data analytics. You learn advance formulas in excel, get familiar with MySQL and Tableau. The instructors are experienced in the field, very knowledgeable and friendly. The exercises and project are similar to industry requests and are relatable so as to learn the skills needed if you were working in the field. Practice outside of the class is definitely required.

    This class was superb!

    I wasn't sure what to expect-even though we were given a syllabus to review. The instructors assigned to this course were coming from excellent areas of business. I loved AI and VR (and I particularly enjoyed the agile learning concept) it took the pressure off of learning and how to apply the material.

    Data Analytics Certificate - Highly recommend!

    If you're looking to become a solid data analyst, this is the course for you! I really wanted to get a better understanding about the work of a data analyst, and how to work more closely with data in my day -to-day life, so I took this course to help me understand how to interpret data and present it (either in a professional setting, personal writing and also within the scope of my job)
