Who Are We?
At General Assembly, we are creating a global community of individuals empowered to pursue work they love, by offering full-time immersive education programs, long-form courses, and classes and workshops on the most relevant skills of the 21st century – from web development and user experience design, to business fundamentals, to data science, to product management and digital marketing.
