Startup Institute, the leading career accelerator for the innovation economy in New York City and Boston, today announced the launch of its first part-time program. The 12-week part-time program is in response to demand from students who want to combine study with full-time employment, while receiving the same intensive training in the most in-demand skills in the startup industry, and demand from companies who are eager to accelerate the skills of their employees and introduce the startup mindset to their teams.
The part-time program will cover four tracks which correlate with the most in-demand positions in the innovation economy including: UX & Web Design, Digital Marketing, Sales & Account Management and Web Development, alongside training in the core skills needed to succeed in high-growth environments or be an effective "intrapreneur." The part-time program also allows corporations and startups to enroll current employees in the program to upskill their workforce and stay ahead of the disruption curve.
Startup Institute's programs help people build the technical skills, culture skills, and network that will launch them into the growing tech community and have a successful career in the digital space. Uniquely positioned at the center of tech ecosystems in Boston and New York, it offers personalized career mentorship and connections to the people and companies that will advance careers and help address the skills shortage often faced by high-growth companies.
"This is the first time that we have made our comprehensive startup programs available on a part-time basis, which allows our students to continue working while they immerse themselves in the program and gain the skills required to succeed in the innovation economy," said Rich DiTieri, Program Director at Startup Institute. "We're helping to close the massive talent gap in tech, in part by increasing accessibility. We have already helped to accelerate the careers of over 1,400 alumni and this part-time program makes the Startup Institute more accessible to those thinking of making a career change or looking to upskill, without the lengthy time commitment or extreme cost of an MBA."
The Startup Institute's part-time programs include:
Web Design – UX and UI design, user research, rapid ideation, and front-end development. Web Development – Key languages, frameworks and deployment techniques. Digital Marketing – Performance and content marketing, data analytics and customer segmentation. Sales and Account Management – Pipeline development, customer relationship management and lead generation.
The Startup Institute's part-time program begins on May 20 and is open for enrollment now at startupinstitute.com.
