During the course, GA’s team of expert instructors provides ongoing student performance feedback that helps guide participants to success.


New in 2021:

This year, Adobe and GA are piloting a Digital Marketing education track. Students selected for this track will be offered a scholarship into GA's part-time 10-week Digital Marketing course (DGM). During the course, students will be asked to complete supplemental Marketo digital marketing automation training provided by Adobe.
