    Best experience ever!

    I never imagined a year ago I would be pursuing a career in software development. At my previous place of employment I noticed I would get very frustrated at the UI/UX and overall software that was used. I noticed the issues it caused our customers as well. Once I connected the dots and found my passion, I started researching for bootcamps in software development. MSU's Online Coding Bootcamp really caught my eye. It was a very flexible course that allowed me to continue working and prov...

    The Digital Marketing Boot Camp allowed me to gain confidence in my digital marketing efforts holistically!

    I have had a successful marketing and communications career, from serving as a Marketing Director to teaching Marketing and Communications at a Tier 1 research university. I started a new position and was tasked with improving and optimizing our digital marketing efforts, which encompassed website, email, SEO, and social. I quickly realized that with all my experience, I maintained high-level roles in digital marketing efforts. I never executed the creations, posting, launching, updating...

    Full Stack Web Development Boot Camp

    I took MSU's Full-Stack Web Development course from January-July of 2022. I ended up graduating with a C+ average.

    As a disclaimer, this is an important subject, as I went into the class to change fields (non-profit to tech). That is not an easy task, and you should expect difficulty in the transition. I spent time going through Free Code Camp's curriculum to prepare, and that absolutely helped.

    That being said, I'll first offer my advice on what to do in the course that I...

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We know how challenging it can be to learn a new skill and we take your feedback very seriously. We’re sorry that you felt frustrated during your experience with our program.

    We truly appreciate your tips and advice for future learners — while we advise learners to set aside at least 15–20 hours per week for classwork and assignments, some of the more challenging material may require additional time to fully digest. This is why we offer the robust support avenues you mentioned; we encourage all learners to lean on their instructional team and learning assistants as needed.

    From your review, we understand that you were not satisfied with your instructor’s teaching style. Our program has an intensive vetting process for instructors and requires a minimum of three years' experience as an active practitioner in the tech industry. We hire professionals in lieu of traditional professors to best simulate real-life working environments.

    We regret to hear that the virtual learning environment did not live up to your expectations, and we understand that the online format may not resonate with all learners. You are absolutely right that one of the best ways to stay connected is to reach out to boot camp staff and classmates on the channels available.

    Our curriculum is based on extensive market research, teaching in-demand skills that learners can use to enter the current field. We understand that you did not feel this learning approach was sufficiently beneficial for you and we appreciate your input, as we're constantly optimizing our curriculum and program offerings.

    We would love the opportunity to speak with you directly to learn how else we can assist you at this time. If you would like, please reach out to us at (313) 918-1028.

    MSU Digital Marketing Bootcamp

    This bootcamp was by far the best class I have ever taken. In class we learned about real life skills and tools that I will be able to speak to in an interview, and use at a future job; we collaborated with classmates that came from all different backgrounds; we worked on presentation skills; we learned how to use so many different platforms and were given so many resources; and finally, through the entirety of the course we were supported and encouraged to grow by our instructor, Alecia...

    Fast-Paced and Teaches Skills With Practical Applications

    I've worked in a research laboratory for several years and faced a lot of frustration in terms of work and advancement opportunities. After a particularly harrowing experience at work around advancement opportunities, I started looking for new jobs, but there weren't a lot of opportunities for laboratory specialists in my area. I talked to my partner, a software developer with 7+ years of experience, and they told me that I should consider taking a coding bootcamp. They said that the IT ...

    very good certification course


    I recently completed a Data Analytics boot camp at Michigan State University, and I couldn't be more satisfied with the overall experience. The program was led by an exceptional team, with Kyle Lintala as my tutor and Rodolfo Fiorini as the instructor.



    Kyle Lintala, my tutor, was a standout mentor throughout the boot camp. His expertise in data analytics and his ability to explain complex concepts in a clear and accessible manner ...

    Practical Skill Strengthening

    Completing the Fullstack Web Developer Bootcamp has been an incredibly enriching experience. The program's thoughtfully designed assignments, which increased in complexity as the course progressed, played a pivotal role in enhancing my understanding of web development concepts.

The emphasis on practical, project-based learning not only solid...

    Great Experience at Michigan State Bootcamp

    I had no prior experience with digital marketing before starting the BootCamp. It easily expanded my knowledge, teaching us modules in logical order. Also, there were in-class exercises that helped in the learning process. The instructor and the teacher assistant made the BootCamp enjoyable by making the learning experience easy and explaining everything in great detail. The BootCamp is truly a great experience that I would recommend to anyone who wants to get started in digital marketin...

    Horribly Run - Great Teaching Staff

    I graduated from the Michigan State University Full Stack Web Development Bootcamp in 2022.

    Overall - I enjoyed the Teaching Assistants, they were enthusiastic, supportive, and great at breaking down complicated concepts. I would give them five stars, truly.

    The course is nuanced and not for everyone - it is intensive and I had taken some Codecademy courses in basic HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to prepare which was helpful. It is extremely reliant on what you put in to truly...

    Thank you for your review. We’re happy that you found the assistant instructors to be supportive during your boot camp experience but regret to hear that the boot camp as a whole did not live up to your expectations.

    As you mentioned, the boot camp is intensive and challenges learners with a rigorous curriculum. That being said, we are committed to providing accessible resources for all of our learners, and we take your feedback regarding the lack of accessibility seriously. It's our goal for all participants to leave the boot camp feeling equipped with the skills they need to succeed.

    We vet our instructors carefully, hiring practitioners with a minimum of three years of experience in the field. Throughout the course, we analyze both their performance and levels of engagement in the classroom, providing feedback to help them further develop their teaching skills. However, we understand that you felt our team did not provide satisfactory support and we never want any of our participants to feel discouraged from continuing their work in our programs and beyond.

    We are also disappointed to hear that your career service experience failed to meet your expectations. Throughout the program, we work to prepare students for their job search through interview coaching, technical interview training, resume building, cultivating an online presence, and employer events.

    We would love to speak with you directly so we can discuss your experience further. We can be reached at (313) 918-1028.

    It's a very challenging and fast paced program.  But if you stick with it to the end, it's very rewarding to see the new skills learned and how much was accomplished.  I had a job offer with a 26% pay increase before the last day of class.

    Full Stack

    Max was an amazing instructor and fully dedicated himself to making sure his students understood what was being taught. I couldn't imagine going through this course with any other instructor.
    For anyone looking to enroll, I would suggest running through a JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and React course on Codecademy before class starts. You want this to come as second nature as possible. Keyboard shortcuts are also a good to know.
