UNC Expands Technology Bootcamp Portfolio

UNC-Chapel Hill has expanded its bootcamp offerings to include Digital Marketing and Technology Project Management. Like all our tech bootcamps, these bootcamps are currently offered fully online in response to COVID-19.

The Digital Marketing Bootcamp is a challenging, part-time program that takes a multidisciplinary approach to attaining proficiency in marketing strategy, campaign development, digital advertising, and modern tools in site analytics and reporting. In 18 weeks, learners will acquire hands-on training in marketing strategy, digital advertising and automation, and campaign/website optimization. The fall 2020 cohort has already begun.

The IT Project Management Bootcamp begins in January 2021. The part-time, 18-week program is designed for learners balancing other commitments such as work and family, and develops learners’ technical fluency, preparing them to lead projects in any industry. Learners will get hands-on training in multiple frameworks and methodologies, and gain the skills necessary to sit for the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master™ Level I Certification.

These offerings join the established Coding Bootcamp and Data Analytics Bootcamp offerings, which have graduated several cohorts. In all our bootcamps, learners create a solid foundation of skills to help them become competitive in their chosen industry. They learn experientially, with the added support of career-planning assistance, including portfolio reviews, mock interviews, soft-skills training, career coaching, and more. Ultimately, they are awarded a Professional Certificate from the William and Ida Friday Center for Continuing Education at UNC-Chapel Hill.

This program is offered through the UNC-Chapel Hill William and Ida Friday Center for Continuing Education, in partnership with Trilogy Education Services, a 2U, Inc. brand.
