About

For years we watched companies struggle to attract qualified marketing and creative talent, while graduates with degrees in the field had tough time landing suitable jobs. Low paying jobs and routine tasks are all but motivating for these individuals, and burden of student debt makes the situation even less bearable.

We at Schoolgency solve this differently by putting forward an educational model which gives equal importance to all three success drivers of a modern professional: knowledge, practical skills and network. Knowledge has no equity unless applied, and there is no way to apply it without a great professional network.

Being supported by institutional partners, Schoolgency offers education and training cost free to its students. On top of that, Schoolgency provides a monthly stipend, comparable to a minimum wage to help students offset their living expenses while in school.

Skills

Students at Schoolgency develop wide range of skills by working on multiple projects for different organizations. Given this, we are confident that our students will hit the ground running and will enter the workforce at a level that fully utilizes their talents.

Knowledge

Our students do not only learn from books. By spending half of their time in academic training and the other half working on real cases for our institutional partners, they gain knowledge which is in demand and is highly valued by their future employers.

Network

Schoolgency offers its students an access to a great network of its partners and beyond. By the time of graduation, students will not only know who their prospective employers are and what working for them is like, but will already have built trust and intimate relationships with them.

OUR BELIEFS

We believe the current educational system to be essentially flawed, with students entering workforce lacking practical knowledge, highly demanded skills and with a heavy debt on their shoulders. We believe professional education should be a basic right in the modern society and not a privilege.

OUR MISSION

Our goal is to raise professionals in high-demand marketing and creative disciplines through an extensive academic and practical training. Our target is for all our students to graduate with zero debt, vast professional network and several job offers right out the door.
