Phase 2 for Boot Camps
Inside Higher Ed - 01/31/2018
Industry observers said the boot-camp space has gotten more competitive after its initial expansion, which in turn exposed unsustainable business models. And shrinking for-profit college companies had purchased stakes in Dev Bootcamp (owned by Kaplan) and the Iron Yard (partially owned by the Apollo Education Group).
At the same time, several traditional universities have launched their own versions of boot camps, with Northeastern University’s Level, which focuses on data analytics, being a notable example.
