From news release:
Prime Digital Academy moving to downtown Minneapolis for larger campus in 2017, adding user experience design program
Growth fueled by market need and graduate success of software engineer cohorts, bucking negative trend of for-profit schools
Recent failures of national for-profit schools are showing that some educational models aren’t able to meet the changing needs of modern employers, but Prime Digital Academy (Prime) is a Minnesota success story that’s showing there is room for disruptive innovation in education. Today, Prime announced a plan to relocate their campus from Bloomington, MN to a new downtown Minneapolis campus in January of 2017. They’ll use the additional space at the new location to launch a program focused on training User Experience Designers. This new course provides a second program option alongside the Software Engineering course that celebrated its 13th graduation ceremony last month. Prime now has 160 alumni working on the development teams of more than 110 companies in the Twin Cities metro – including Prime’s sister company, The Nerdery.
