Code Fellows is the coding bootcamp with the most amount of graduates (11.15%) who got jobs at Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, and Microsoft – the same "Big Five" alumni employment rate Stanford University's computer science program boasts. That's according to a LinkedIn analysis by tech education resource company Switchup, in a report published last month that's now gaining attention. Switchup concludes bootcamps offered similar Big 5 employment results compared to top universities but at ~10% of the cost.
- Code Fellows had a higher percentage of alumni working for the Big Five than Cornell and UC-Berkeley's computer science departments.
- Meanwhile, Hackbright Academy – which came in at No. 2 with 5.82% – beat Harvard University's 5.24%.
- Switchup analyzed LinkedIn to gauge the employment rates for 370 bootcamps.
