A word to describe the Growth Marketing course here at Xi, would be ‘illuminating’. I was struck by the sheer scope of the field. Structured introductions to the vast array of concepts, tools, and theories were followed by deep dives based on the students needs and interests. It felt as if I had the ability to explore the subject with incredible freedom. This heuristic approach to learning was especially engaging and seriously fun. A journey I’m beyond happy to have taken alongside my fantastic teachers.

The growth marketing course was truly a life-changing experience. Thanks to an amazing mentor/teacher, a supportive academy community and very talented fellow students, I was able to fulfil a dream – to start my own sustainability project. I am now seeing the results, both in the success of the project and in my own capacities professionally and as an individual. I highly recommend this course to anyone who has an entrepreneurial idea and would like to explore it, learning all about growth marketing as you apply it to your project. Thanks Academy XI!
