Capella Education Adds Another Coding Bootcamp to Its Portfolio

May 5, 2016

SHOPPING SPREE: Capella Education can’t get enough of bootcamps. On Wednesday the for-profit education company announced it bought DevMountain, a Provo, Utah-based programming school, in a deal worth up to $20 million. DevMountain offers 12-week, full-time immersive software coding programs in web and iOS development, with a total cost to students of $10,500.

Capella is putting serious skin in the skills-training game. This purchase comes less than two weeks after it acquired Hackbright Academy, a San Francisco-based coding bootcamp for women, for $18 million. Capella also partnered with CareerBuilder to launch RightSkill, which offers competency-based programs for in-demand skills including systems administration and retail management.
