    Awesome experience

    My experience with Springboard was AWESOME. I started the program with no experience, the curriculum, mentors and career coaches were excellent. I had a terrific time learning and now I have invaluable skills.

    Great UX curriculum, stellar support

    Springboard's UX Essentials curriculum is a great overview of the UX design process for absolute beginners, with a solid basis of history and core concepts and progressing through a well-paced guide to doing it all for yourself. The real star of the show, though, is the amount of support provided to students, especially in the form of 1:1 weekly mentor calls, which provide real world experience from real people and do well to keep students on task.

    Exceeded my expectations and I learned a lot!

    As a working professional, I've learned that constant learning is essential for career success!  As such, I had a great experience with Springboard's data science courses and was expecting the same out of their business analytics course. I really enjoyed learning about the various concepts taught in the program: data modeling, dashboarding, customer life-time value among many others. Despite being familiar with the basics of these and other concepts (I have a Master's Degree in a program t...

    Springboard Business Analytics

    At first, I was a little nervous taking this course due to my limited background in this particular field, but I felt that it was a necessary component to add to my profile to help further my career. 
    Following the introduction meeting, before the course started, the student advisors took time to answer any questions those starting the course had and did let us all know that this course was designed for those with limited experience in this field, which soothed my nerves. They also le...

    Digital Marketing Career Track

    I thought I'd wait awhile to review this course so I could let everything sink in and see how the post-school support was and job search. Let's start with the beginning though.

    I did the 200 hour digital marketing career track program. I went into this program without any sort of degree in marketing to start and I realized it would make it harder to get a job and the site also says this.

    UX Career Track

    You can really tell how much work Springboard puts into developing their students- they made sure I was matched with a brilliant mentor, had on-demand mentor calls for extra support with plenty of availability, and they're even starting in-person meetups or recommending events/workshops to go to so it doesn't feel like a disconnected online experience.

    Great curriculum and support for the price, but took a little longer than advertised.

    The curriculum is well structured and the mentors are a great deal of support for the price. The only thing that I had trouble with was completing the program in the advertised amount of time. I think in total I averaged about 25-30 hours a week over the course of 7 months, but that could have been due to the complexity of my capstone projects. I definitely learned a ton in that time period though and they were very supportive the whole time!

    UX Design

    Springboard was an excellent choice for a Ux bootcamp. Everything from the faculty, who were always so quick and prompt to answer any questions/ help out to the curriculum. 
    The information was presented in a really clear format and was easy to follow.  The projects for each section were a great  way  for me to apply what I learned.  It was amazing to have a mentor that I spoke with on a weekly basis. This was so valuable, as I was able to get  feedback, insight into UX and help from ...

    Springboard's UX Design Career Track provided me the opportunity to learn and demonstrate my expertise in UX

    Prior to committing to Springboard's UX Career Track, I spoke to several different representatives and mentors from different programs to help me pick the most suitable one for me. While Springboard doesn't necessarily always have their own content for the curriculum, the articles, videos, and project briefs were very well-curated and the mentors I came into contact with were all very professional and helpful.

    Data Science Career Track

    So overall it was a good experience from Springboard. I think where they excel is pairing you up with a mentor who has real work experience. What they may need to work on is more helpful feedback to students after submitting assignments, projects.

    The course went over the general data science process. Maybe more emphasis on cloud services and big data.
