You will learn from the best in the business.
An unparalleled group of industry leaders and practitioners have signed on to help at Tradecraft. These are people who push the craft forward, establish industry standards and actively mentor the next generation of leaders. Your work at Tradecraft will give you the opportunity to learn from their experience, collaborate on projects, and establish meaningful relationships.
You will do real work for real companies.
There is no substitute for real-world experience. That’s why you will be required to not just work on, but lead, a number of projects for Silicon Valley companies throughout the semester. The projects will reinforce your track-specific development, provide valuable leadership opportunities and help you make more informed decisions once settled into your new job.
You will learn to adapt.
You will experience varying levels of guidance at Tradecraft. Why? Because that’s how it happens in the real world. These are rapidly changing fields, so being able to adapt and evolve is absolutely essential. That’s why our method involves everything from instructors explaining topics in great detail to assignments where you will be expected to research and teach new concepts to the class.
You will have a unique experience.
Our expectation that you can teach yourself the fundamentals allows us to offer a substantial amount of flexibility throughout the program. We will require you to learn those skills that we consider “core” to your field, but where you dive deep will depend on where you’ve been and where you want to go.
