Our engaging live online classes will help you develop the hard and soft skills needed to land your dream job in tech.
Application deadline is June 18th.
We focus on rapidly developing your industry awareness and skills to make you attractive to tech employers.
Sales is one of the most transferable skills on the market, but learning how to sell technology requires some specialized knowledge. In this rotation you will learn how to find the right company to sell for, what roles and salaries are available for professionals in this field, and how you can develop the communication skills required to drive revenue.
Talented marketers are always in demand because revenue teams need a healthy flow of people interested in what they have to offer. In this rotation you will learn how digital marketing has changed in recent years, how you can prove your ability to drive engaged customers to a brand, and how you can start to develop experience before you land a job.
Product jobs in tech require a unique combination of skills that allow you to work seamlessly with business stakeholders, engineers, and designers alike. In this rotation you will learn which tech roles to pursue in order to gain the experience needed to land a product job, while also building an understanding of how product roles differ between direct-to-consumer and business brands.
This is one of the most valuable and dynamic roles across tech companies of any stage, and also one of the most difficult to recruit for. In this rotation you will learn how to develop the soft skills needed to excel in this role, while becoming familiar with the software and tools every operator needs to know to impress current bosses or hiring managers and hit the ground running in any operations role.

No, you do not need to know code to work in tech! School16 was developed to educate people on the opportunities that exist in the non-technical side of tech (i.e. the non-coding side). So no matter your background or experience, we will help you develop the skills and confidence needed to gain access to the best opportunities.
Yes, graduates receive the official School16 certificate of completion and access to all future School16 events and past class recording
The program is designed to expose students to the four core non-coding roles in tech — sales, marketing, operations, product management, and other roles related to these core disciplines. Oftentimes School16 graduates land jobs in tech sales, customer success, and marketing.
This program is for anyone that's interested in pursuing a non-technical career in the technology sector. While learning how to code can be a useful skill for anyone, there's currently a major talent gap for high-income jobs in the tech sector that don't require programming experience.
Roles across product, operations, marketing, and sales are also far more open to candidates from non-traditional backgrounds, allowing for more rapid career progression than other fields.
School16 offers flexible payment options and opportunities to learn risk free.
The full tuition is $2,500 and all students automatically get considered for need-based scholarships with the option to repay tuition in monthly installments. If you're currently unemployed, and you do not receive a scholarship, you have the option of deferring payment until you get a job. If you would like to talk about the options we may have available for you schedule a free discovery call here.
The Technology Career Acceleration Program is structured as a rotational experience to expose you to everything from marketing to product — creating a well-rounded set of skills that will make you a highly effective member of any technology team.
Unlike with other industries, technology companies move fast and prioritize cross-functional skills and the ability to quickly solve a variety of problems. This is why you often see people moving from Sales to Product, or Customer Success to Marketing. No matter your background and experience, we will help you develop the skills and confidence to gain access to the best opportunities.
The curriculum consists of three main session types:
- General career classes to help you develop a personal brand and narrative that employers will seek out;
- Specialized role awareness classes that teach you the most important principles of a given role in tech;
- Experiential classes that put what you learn into immediate practice to help build out your resume
Classes typically run 90 minutes to two hours.
The name School16 is inspired by a little known school that was founded in a small city in Eastern Europe in 1981. The school was an experiment to test a new model of education that prioritized student interests and talents over a rigid learning curriculum. Two years later this would become one of the most innovative education programs in all of the former Soviet Union, with delegates from all over the world studying its model. That school was called School No. 16, and the Founding Director was our father, Dr. Samuel Revzin.
Since becoming university educators ourselves after spending a decade in tech, we saw that the rapidly changing opportunity landscape is creating a new moment in time where innovation in adult education is necessary. Career success today depends more on good communication and adaptability than it does on any one particular area of academic study.When it comes to high-income technology careers specifically, a well-rounded foundation and understanding of how business teams function is critical to career advancement, and School16 is building a new model of education to address this new reality.
Our mission at School16 is to create a learning environment that provides opportunities for all students, regardless of background or experience, to rapidly acquire the knowledge necessary to lead fulfilling and successful careers.
Yes! The Technology Career Acceleration Program is a twice-a-week part-time program designed to provide working students with the ability to complete the program, while maintaining their current professional responsibilities. Many of our students also expense the program through work as professional development training.
