Lynn University today announced a partnership with Miami-based coding bootcamp Wyncode Academy. The announcement comes one year after Lynn and Wyncode executives participated in the “Disruption of Education” panel at eMerge Americas, during which they identified a collaboration opportunity.
“A traditional liberal arts education develops strategic thinking abilities, but doesn’t always provide the opportunity for technical skill development and exploration,” says Lynn President Kevin M. Ross. “Technology is evolving continuously, and the nature of bootcamps provides flexibility needed to quickly adapt to market needs. We identified a great alignment between Wyncode and Lynn’s services to enable individuals to get high-demand coding experience while earning a degree.”
The partnership makes way for a new graduate degree program comprising Lynn’s Master of Business Administration or Master of Science in Media and Communication foundation courses and Wyncode’s nine-week immersive web development program. Students who complete the bootcamp will earn nine credits toward an MBA or M.S. that focuses on web design strategies, development and management.
