Design is a valuable skill for everybody! But we find that these three get the most value out of this particular course. Fresh graduates get the chance to learn a skill a lot of companies are looking for now. You will add value from day one by mastering this skill. Career switchers will, next learning Sketch, also like the introduction to design overall, to make a good decisions in what they would like to specialize. Entrepreneurs that are bootstrapping there way through the first months, and don't have the funds to hire expensive designers right now, can bridge the gap by taking control of the design work themselves.

All the instructors are very helpful and eager to share their knowledge. I learned directly how to apply new knowledge, boosted my network by working on case studies with other attendees and got amazing career guidance by UBARU after the course. Every course feels like it is made for me.
