A new study authored by Course Report reveals surprising data about the economic and social benefits of the emerging for-profit training model. According to the study, more than 70% of bootcamp graduates report holding employment requiring use of the skills learned in the bootcamp, and more than 60% have received salary increases as a result of their completion. Women comprise more than 40% of the national bootcamp student profile, and African-Americans who complete coding bootcamps are the highest earners and most likely to be employed at a tech company.
