The team aims to help transform careers through mentorship, professional growth workshops, and educational programs.


Learn all about General Assembly’s recent landing in San Diego (and how it aims to help San Diegans level up their careers) from City Lead Timothy Payne:

General Assembly (GA) has ‘assembled’ in your community! Since 2011, GA has transformed tens of thousands of careers through pioneering, experiential education in today’s most in-demand skills. GA is excited to bring San Diego:


Award-winning curriculum and expert instructors, on campus and online.

Today’s complex, global economy requires a skilled workforce that can leverage technology to fuel success. General Assembly’s robust suite of courses includes all the fundamental pillars of innovation to give individuals and teams several options for growth and development. GA offers programs in web development, data science and analysis, user experience design, digital marketing, product management, and more. Students can choose from a range of formats and modalities to help them best achieve their goals, including full-time, part-time, and short-form options — on campus, and online.


A global, professional community of 80,000+ full- and part-time alumni.

GA boasts 32 campuses, 5,000+ hiring partners, and 80,000+ full- and part-time course grads, as well as numerous events and workshops. Its global presence, alumni network, and hiring partners are some of its biggest assets. In addition to courses designed exclusively to meet employer needs, GA fosters a pipeline of industry professionals who serve as instructors, mentors, and coaches. This thriving professional network helps GA’s recent graduates find jobs and make connections, setting them up for success on the job, and in life.   


Career results from leading-edge courses, with mentorship each step of the way.

Deep employer relationships have always been an essential part of General Assembly’s DNA. Roughly half of GA’s part-time students are funded by employers who want their employees trained by our experts, and GA curricula are guided by industry needs. GA has helped dozens of Fortune 100 companies — and hundreds of other businesses worldwide — to assess and train their talent, on-site, online, or at our campuses. GA also provide hiring solutions for companies seeking a diverse pipeline of candidates who are job-ready, armed with in-demand skills.


Invest in Access and Opportunity

GA provides dynamic tech education that covers both hard and soft skills. Together with nonprofits, government leaders, and companies, GA works to enable adults from underrepresented groups to unleash their potential and pursue careers in tech. Its programs, like CodeBridge, Adobe Digital Academy, and GI Bill®, are designed in collaboration with trusted partners and provide routes to careers in growing fields. GA is also proud to offer financing options for prospective students who can’t afford the full cost of tuition, such as its partnership with Climb Credit, a merit-based loan program.
