Yesterday, I was speaking with an individual who is interested in enrolling in DGM Camp. He had several really good questions, which we talked through, and then he asked one final question:

What is the difference between this week long class and the 10-week long digital marketing class at GA?

A great question indeed, and actually the same question I had to answer for the folks at General Assembly when I first proposed the DGM Camp concept. Naturally, you wouldn’t want to create an offering that cannibalizes your primary offering, so there must¬†be clear differences between the two offerings. There are. Here’s a comparison.

These are some of the high-level differences. Since April 25 – 29th will be the first time we offer DGM Camp, I’m sure we’ll be able to point out some other strong differences between the two. I’ve led the 10-week Digital Marketing class 3 times in the past year. Generally, that class is more about marketing, whereas DGM Camp will be about the technology that is used in marketing.

What do you think?
