Curious what life after a coding bootcamp looks like? Or who Grand Circus students are? We’re excited to introduce you to our 2017 Outcomes Report that includes more on that!
Since 2015, Grand Circus has released an outcomes report that outlines how soon after graduation our students are finding their first careers in IT, graduates’ salary information as well as demographics. We believe in transparency – for our alumni as well as current and future students alongside the broader tech community.
We’ve come a long way since we opened our doors in 2013. In 2014, we hosted our first bootcamp with just four cohorts. By the end of 2017, we climbed to more than 200 companies in our employer network. And this year, we celebrated the graduation of our 1,000th student. We’re proud of our success! But, we also know there is a long way to go to help fill the more than 1 million computer-programming jobs that will go unfilled by 2020.
As you read through the 2017 Outcomes Report, you’ll notice that the amount of students we’ve trained increased by 16%, graduation rates have improved from 93.8% to 96.8%, the median salary our graduates receive rose from $50K to $52K and are employment rates held steady at 86.6% from 87.2%.
We also launched a new offering, the Academy, which aims to help employer onboard junior-level talent quicker, while giving our graduates immediate experience in the workforce after graduation.
We are a proud Michigan company who cares deeply about the communities we serve. We are committed to the transparency and accuracy of our outcomes and in delivering an excellent product to our students and employers. With that in mind, we proudly present you with the 2017 Outcomes Report.
