Thinking about a Master’s Degree?_

If you’re looking to build hard, tangible skills to show off to employers, grad school is not the way to go. Become a data scientist 4X faster with Codeup. Get hired within 6 months of graduating, or get your tuition back.*

Will a Master’s Degree make you more employable?_

My toilet is acting up. Do I call someone with a PhD in Fluid Dynamics to learn how the physics messed up my pipes, or do I call a plumber to come and fix it? In the tech world, knowledge on theory won’t get you very far. In a graduate Data Science program, you’ll spend a fortune learning a whole lot of theory about statistics, then algorithms, then applied machine learning, and then you’ll graduate with a hard-earned piece of paper but, sadly, no skills to show potential employers. Not here.

Graduate degrees are set up in a way where you learn about pipe theory, then the history of the wrench, then the physics of water. Our curriculum is set up to let you practice how to actually fix things so you can be the best plumber out there. Not a plumber though, a data scientist.

Interested? We thought so_

Lots of job listings for data scientists require a degree, but the good news is that lots don’t, and those that do often don’t care what your degree is in. As long as there’s evidence that you have the right skills, you’re employable. And building skills is what we’re all about. 

You’ll have plenty of projects to show off to potential employers which will put you way ahead of PhDs that haven’t yet applied what they learned in class. Employers can’t waste their time training candidates that have knowledge but not skill. That’s why we’re here!

In fact, we have students every year that finished their degrees but couldn’t get hired.

They’ll give you the shirt off their back | Lance_

Lance previously served in the Marine Corps. He was ready for a career change. Toward the end of his time at Codeup, he got an impromptu opportunity to interview with a company but was dressed for class, not an interview. So our VP of Business Development, Stephen, gave him the shirt off his back. That’s how dedicated we are to each and every student’s long term success.

(P.S. He got the job!)

We offer financial aid, too_

Worried about the $29,500 price tag? Don’t be. It’s way cheaper than a Master’s degree and we’ll help you out with scholarships, loans, and payment plans. You might even be able to use yours or your parent’s GI Bill. With one of our loan options, you won’t have to start paying until 3 months after graduating our program. And by then, you’ll hopefully already have a data science job with an awesome salary. Master’s degrees are insanely expensive, and there’s no refund if you don’t get a job. Have peace of mind by taking the Codeup route. The only thing you risk is your time.
