I took the Digital Marketing course at a stage where my startup was ready to scale and I found the course extremely beneficial. The course was practical and struck a great balance between breadth and depth of topics. The instructors took time to understand each student’s project/objectives, and provided tailored instruction. I also really enjoyed the collaborative classroom setting—I learned a lot from my fellow students. The instructors were brilliant and passionate and the Academy Xi family were extremely supportive. I would highly recommend this course to anyone ready to execute their idea or grow their startup.
