“When discussing this program, we intended for it to outperform any other form of training in marketing and strategy that we could find— We succeeded. Reportedly, business and marketing undergrads are not able to find jobs in our industry because there’s a noticeable skills and knowledge gap. This program is designed to fill that gap and to match incoming talent to the expectations of the market.”
