If you like thinking outside the box and get energized at creating value through efficiency — you’ll love Robotic Process Automation (RPA). Build fully functional automation processes as you learn the latest technology and theory in RPA.

Organizations across all industries — from energy to finance, healthcare and more — are realizing the benefits of RPA in their digital transformation process. RPA provides opportunities to spend time and resources on the more strategic, value-add aspects in business operations, with applications in finance, accounting, customer service, human resources, supply chain and more.

Globally informed but locally driven, this bootcamp is perfect for early to mid-career professionals who are interested in becoming an RPA developer, analyst or architect. As a new graduate, you’ll bring immediate value to any company looking to implement or scale its RPA practices.
