Boston start-up school

August 28, 2012 Leave a comment

I often say students are not ready to meet the proffessional market when finishing university due to different reasons: the lack of practical contents, out of date proffesors, non-vocational degrees… The Boston Start-up School came up with the same conclusion, even though American education tends to be considered as a better aproach to the marketplace than the European.

As the article reads, this school offers an intensive 6-weeks course for young people seeking jobs in the city, focusing on marketing, software development, product design, and sales and business development. Moreover, classes are free since different start-ups are providing funds to have an early access to these students.

It’s likely that similar schools arise in other hi-tech cities as San Francisco, New York or Chicago, and might be a nice initiative to be held here in Europe too.
