Lynn University partners with coding bootcamp Wyncode Academy

Students take classes at Wyncode Academy through Lynn University.

Lynn University today announced a partnership with Miami-based coding bootcamp Wyncode Academy. The announcement comes one year after Lynn and Wyncode executives participated in the "Disruption of Education" panel at eMerge Americas, during which they identified a collaboration opportunity.

"A traditional liberal arts education develops strategic thinking abilities, but doesn't always provide the opportunity for technical skill development and exploration," says Lynn President Kevin M. Ross. "Technology is evolving continuously, and the nature of bootcamps provides flexibility needed to quickly adapt to market needs. We identified a great alignment between Wyncode and Lynn's services to enable individuals to get high-demand coding experience while earning a degree."

The partnership makes way for a new graduate degree program comprising Lynn's Master of Business Administration or Master of Science in Media and Communication foundation courses and Wyncode's nine-week immersive web development program. Students who complete the bootcamp will earn nine credits toward an MBA or M.S. that focuses on web design strategies, development and management.

"The majority of Wyncode students have college degrees, so it was a natural fit for us to partner with Lynn and offer bootcamp participants the option to further their education," says Wyncode Co-Founder Johanna Mikkola. "In addition to learning to code at Wyncode, traditional graduate degree-seeking students will be immersed in Miami's up-and-coming startup ecosystem, which is positioned to become a major tech center due to its entrepreneurial climate and close links to Latin America. Our accelerated nine-week schedule allows university students to complete the course quickly, like during the summer, without disrupting their traditional studies"

Wyncode has three Florida locations in Wynwood, Miami Beach and Fort Lauderdale, and Lynn's graduate programs can be completed at its Boca Raton, Florida, campus, online or a combination of both.
