Scale is a 12-week online program that prepares you for an entrepreneurial career in tech
Dates: May 21 - Aug 10
Scale is a 12-week online program that takes students through the basics of digital marketing, design, data science, web design, and software engineering. After learning the basics, you'll apply what you learned in a 5-week internship.
After completing Scale, you'll be a tech generalist and a perfect candidate for an tech company -- from a small startup team with three employees up to a large tech company such as Google or Uber.

Overview of the Program
Learn the basics of the tech world: How to send killer emails, use rapid prototyping skills, and how to put on awesome events and programs.
Learn the basics of design including how to make awesome graphics, logos, and mockups. You'll learn the same tools that the pros use and important principles such as how to use space, color, and fonts.
Learn a combination online strategies such as search engine optimization, content, and social media paired with skills you need to conduct in-depth market research and analysis.
Learn the art and science of finding, cleaning, understanding, storing, manipulating and visualizing data.
Get a taste of a few foundational languages such as ReactJS and NodeJS. You will learn these through interesting mini projects and lessons. We minimize the theoretical stuff.
Learn everything you need to know about credit card rewards, investing, and taxes. Then you'll do some deep reflections about who you are, what you're good at, and what you want to accomplish.
You'll be matched with an early stage startup, work directly with the founders, and learn what it's like to work for a company that is still trying to mind product-market fit. The internship will be remote and you'll be expected to work 10hr/week.
What the program includes
We spent four years testing Scale to make it awesome. We interviewed over a 100 students, took their feedback, and incorporated it into this program. This isn't like any online course you have ever seen before.
Each weekday, you will receive an agenda for the day. These agendas will include articles to read and small assignments to apply what you learn.
The best way to learn new material is to teach it to others. Some assignments will require you to teach other program participants about a topic.
Each week, you will be responsible for completing a project related to that week's skill. With each project, you will be given extensive feedback.
Unlike other online classes, we've found ways to allow each program participant to become an active and engagement member of the community.
Throughout the program, you'll have regular check-ins with a mentor to make sure you're getting the most out of Scale.
We'll teaching you how to write awesome resumes and cover letters, how to have a LinkedIn profile that stands out, and how to make a career path that gets you closer to your goals.
Each week you'll check-in with one of our program mentors. During these sessions you can ask questions, ask for advice, or learn about additional learning resources.
During the last five weeks of the program, you'll do a mini internship and learn what it's like to work remotely for a startup building to scale.
