Flexible, personal experiences

At MentorCruise, your learning and progress is tailored to you. Need to adhere to a certain schedule or work around your studies around work? No problem.

Fit in a box

Bootcamps like NYC Data Science Academy need to adhere to some requirements like a curriculum or even full time-table to be able to deliver content to all students at once.

End-to-end experience

MentorCruise doesn't end. If your goal is to get hired, you can work with your mentor until you sign that offer. If you want to level up a skillset of yours, you can do so for however long it takes.

From A to B and not further

Bootcamps are not affordable

The traditional upfront tuition at NYC Data Science Academy is $17,600. The average cost of a bootcamp is $13,500 ā€“ 14x higher than MentorCruise!
