Not Sure Where to Apply?

Last Updated: January 9, 2020

Today, business careers include many up-and-coming specializations, from digital marketing to financial modeling. That’s why accelerated education programs and bootcamps are now offered for people who want to pursue specialized business roles, and also for those who simply want to become “power users” of leading business software tools, such as Microsoft Excel. There are also programs for people who are interested in software engineering with a specific career direction in mind, such as Behavior Driven Development (BDD) or user experience (UX) design.

Business-oriented bootcamps can provide skills that are relevant to a variety of career paths. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has identified some relevant categories, such as Business and Financial Occupations, a sector that’s expected to grow by 7% from 2018 to 2028. Professionals in this category earn a median salary of $68,000. Another example is the category of Advertising, Promotions, and Marketing Managers, which has a median salary of $132,000 and is expected to grow by 8% in that same time frame.

To help students find a program with the structure and content that’s right for them, SwitchUp has compiled alumni reviews that range from 1 to 5 stars for business-related bootcamps.
