Based in three countries, the school earned innumerable accolades for the quality of its teaching and career prospects offered. Far from a traditional learning environment, the institute teaches students to code, build a brand, as well as the how-tos of curating the career of their dreams.
Courses range from beginner-oriented, easy-to-learn modules to those aimed at developing the hardest-to-attain capabilities, such as software engineering, computer science, and programming languages. But the schools’ real strengths lie in its additional classes. By teaching students to develop an exceptional work ethic, teamwork and communication skills, Codecool aims to prepare its approximately 500 students admitted annually for a prosperous future – not just for life after school.
“Automation affects every area from production through logistics, sales, and administration, demanding a skilled workforce at technology companies and in every other industry alike. The growth of Central and Eastern European companies will be defined by how successful they turn out to be in the process of digital transformation” – says Balázs Vinnai, Founder of Codecool.
This progressive, forward-thinking mentality had already produced a positive impact. Since its founding in 2014, the school has undergone numerous expansions. Currently, they have facilities in Budapest, Miskolc, Kraków, Warsaw, and Bucharest, and in the next few years, the student body is expected to double due to popular demand.
This process will be further increased thanks to the generous support of two venture capital fund management firms, Lead Ventures, and PortfoLion.
Having just attained 3.5 million USD in funding – as EU Startups reports – Codecool is ready to revolutionize higher education. Judging by what they have already achieved, the future never looked quite so promising.
