New York City-based General Assembly, a global education company, announced Wednesday it will open a campus in Irvine. General Assembly offers classes in person and online in design, technology, marketing and data, including data analytics and data science.
The location and opening date for the Irvine campus have not been finalized. In the meantime, the company will be hosting events and workshops throughout Irvine with local partners, including co-working spaces, according to a spokesperson.
In addition to Irvine, General Assembly is opening several new campuses in “less traditional tech hotspots to increase accessibility for those looking to obtain in-demand digital skills,” the spokesperson said. Those new locations include San Jose, Brooklyn and Brisbane, Australia.
The company also announced its expansion into Canada with the acquisition of Toronto-based Bitmaker, an accelerator for those interested in careers in design and tech.
