Where ambitious people go to accelerate their career in tech.

School16 strives to create a learning environment that provides opportunities for all students—regardless of background or experience—to rapidly acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to lead fulfilling and successful careers in tech.

Our graduates are building careers at some of the top companies in tech.

Here’s what they have to say.

Experiential Learning

Learn how startups overcome real-world challenges and get an inside look into how each non-coding role plays a part in the solution.

Practical Curriculum

Gain a complete understanding of the most sought-after, non-coding roles and skills in tech right now and learn how to develop and leverage your skills to impress hiring managers.

Mentorship & Ongoing Support

Get 1-on-1 support from leaders at some of tech’s fastest-growing startups and develop mentorship relationships that extend far beyond your School16 experience.

Part-Time Commitment

Attend twice-a-week sessions and complete the coursework while maintaining your current professional responsibilities.

Advanced learning concentrations.

Our advanced learning concentrations focus on areas of particular interest within the non-coding side of tech. We designed these programs to help students take a deeper dive into their chosen field and learn more about successfully positioning themselves for specific roles.

All students who successfully complete our 8-Week Technology Career Acceleration certificate program will be eligible to apply to an advanced learning concentration and continue their education. Concentrations focus on one of four core business roles in tech—marketing, sales, operations, or product management—and allow students to specialize in a specific discipline. Students will receive a second certificate for completing one of our advanced concentrations.

Speak with an admissions officer to find out which advanced concentration program is right for your continued learning goals.

Meet your instructors and mentors.

Our instructors and mentors are all seasoned professionals with years of experience leading business teams across the four core non-technical disciplines we base our curriculum around. Students will graduate from our certificate program armed with the practical knowledge and mentor support necessary to succeed in the technology sector.
