Should be a part of college education

“I feel like what School16 does actually needs to be a part of college education, but it's not unfortunately and School16 does a great job of filling that gap. The curriculum actually teaches you to network, connect with people, find great employers, interview well, and give actionable playbooks on each part of the process. I enjoyed School16 and it has been instrumental for me in getting promoted and accelerating my professional growth!”

From the classes I gained knowledge that I've always needed, but haven't been able to find on the internet or in person. I would strongly recommend School16 to anyone looking for a role in tech.”

Frequently Asked Questions
I'm working full-time. Can I still take this course?

Yes. This course is part-time and intended for working professionals or students. The classes are held virtually, on Zoom, from 6-8pm EST twice a week. You can complete homework assignments at any time during the week. Many of our students also expense the program as professional development training through their employer. You can email us at info@school16.co to learn more about expensing School16 tuition through an employer.

Who is this program a good fit for?

This program is for anyone with professional work experience interested in changing careers, or pursuing a non-technical career where coding skills are not required. While learning how to code can be a useful skill for anyone, there's currently a major talent gap for high-growth companies that don't require programming experience.

Our program focuses on roles across operations, marketing, customer success and sales, which are far more open to candidates from non-traditional backgrounds, allowing for more rapid career progression than other fields.

How much does the program cost?

School16 offers flexible payment options and opportunities to learn risk-free. The full tuition for the Program is $3,500 USD. All students are automatically considered for need-based scholarships and have the option to repay their tuition in monthly installments. If you're currently unemployed, and you do not receive a scholarship, we provide several financing through our partners, on top of our job guarantee for eligible students.

What sets School16 apart from other courses?

Most students are interested in different career paths and shouldn't be forced to pick a career without being informed about their options.  School16 offers the only program in the market that allows you to explore different roles while developing a strong business foundation. Our program not only teaches you the skills that you'll need for any first-time technology related role — but the curriculum also provides the mentorship necessary to find the right industry and role you'd like to work in. There are a lot of business roles out there, and we want to help you find the right fit for you.

Is this a certificate-granting program?

Yes, successful completion of this program will earn students a certificate of completion in Technology Business Strategy and Development, which can be featured prominently on LinkedIn and your resume.

What is the daily schedule of the course?

The classes meet twice a week for 90-120 minute sessions. Students will also receive assignments to complete during the rest of the week, including readings, solo work, and group projects.

What level of experience do I need to have to join this class?

In general, we recommend students successfully complete our Tech Career Acceleration Program before any concentration. However, students with 1-2 years of experience working in a marketing or marketing adjacent function may be eligible to join the concentration outright. Students at varying places in their careers will find the Advanced Concentration: Digital Marketing course useful—including students currently enrolled in college or university with some tech experience (including internships) and/or some marketing experience; or those that have taken the School16 Tech Career Accelerator Program. Those already working, at any stage of their career, may also be a good fit for the program. Our admissions counselors will guide applicants towards the right program fit based on their goals, whether that is the Advanced Concentration: Digital Marketing, another concentration, or our Tech Career Accelerator Program.

What industries and roles are School16 students typically from?

School16 students come from various industries and levels of experience. Our students have come from tech, education, nonprofits, government, even musical theater. Some are currently enrolled in college, early in their career, mid-level, or have even led successful and long careers in their respective field. Transitioning to tech, including into Marketing roles, can be a good fit for anyone, regardless of their background. If you're interested in exploring Marketing careers, we're here to help you.

What job titles could I expect after successfully completing this course?

Our graduates are eligible for hundreds of job titles which differ greatly depending on which sector or professional career trajectory you choose to pursue. Some of the positions our students have secured include: Digital Marketing Manager, Operations Manager, Customer Success Manager, Enterprise Sales Executive, Project Manager, Program Manager, Program Coordinator, Business Analyst, Social Media Planner, and more.

Our coaches work closely with our students to identify in demand roles that are the best fit for them, to quickly start securing interviews and job offers.
