    Great teachers and content

    BrainStation has awesome industry experts, working in that exact field, teaching the courses. I found it really helpful to get not only the practical content but also what it would realistically be like in application. 

    My only concern is that you’re not able to download lecture slides/content, so make sure you take really good notes and/or screen shot where needed so you have the info to reference in the future.

    Great experience with the UXUI program!

    My experience at Wyncode has been great! The top factor for me is the professor, Gessica, who does an incredible job educating and supporting students. She's flexible in schedule, and responsive and adaptaive to the concerns and needs of her students. She's also makes it a fun time! I learned so much about UXUI and having the 3 projects to work through in the curriculum are great assests for your final portfolio when job searching.  The Wyncode space itself is full of energy and fosters co...

    Digital Marketing - Accelerated

    Shannon Thorndyke is an angel in real life. Coming into the digital marketing course I already had some background knowledge on the core concepts but Shannon filled in all knowledge gaps I had. She is an amazing communicator and makes you feel comfortable asking questions you may not feel comfortable asking elsewhere. She did an amazing job engaging the classroom and starting conversations that I think were beneficial to everyone no matter the experience level. Is Shannon worth the cost of...

    Highly recommend Product Management course at BrainStation

    I was very impressed BrainStation’s part time Product Management course. 

    Andy Woo and Keith Dell were fantastic instructors -- they were always engaging with a vast knowledge of product management, and used real world examples from their workplace or otherwise to explain concepts.  Given that the course was a limited amount of time, I felt that the instructors spent the right amount of time and the concepts that mattered.  

    Our outside of class work was manageable and ...

    Social Media Marketing Course

    Wow! This was so fun and informative. The instructors use the curriculum to guide you through designing a paid campaign for social, step by step. There's so much more to it that Facebok and Instagram. The whole experience was really focused, starting with core marketing principals and then getting into the nitty-gritty of how to segment audiences, write great copy, choose imagery, and budget for the ad on all the different platforms.  It was all reflected really well in the students' final...

    Great Experience at 2-Day Design Thinking Training

    I took the 2-Day Design Thinking Training at the new BrainStation campus in NYC, and had a wonderful experience! The course was truly collaborative, hands-on, and comprehensive – and the intimate class size and both knowledgeable and approachable instructor made for a really rich learning environment. After the 2-days, I left the training with a comprehensive understanding of design thinking, and was able to apply what I had learned in my day-to-day job. After 8 years in the industry, this...

    Product Management

    I really enjoyed my product management class at Brainstation. It helped to formalize my learnings on digital products. The instructors were awesome, they always made time for questions and provided real-life scenarios to the theory they were teaching. The class curriculum was great, there was a formal learning session and hands-on class group activity to apply the learnings to follow. The activities were fun, and I got to work with a network of people from different industries. It was a gr...

    Full Stack Web Developer

    My experience at Wyncode was Amazing and Intense, but I wouldn't change it for the world! This was a career change for me and had very little knowledge about programming and this program gave me the hard skills I need to to work as a Full Stack Web Developer.
