Today, a new Holberton campus opens its doors in the Bordeaux metropolitan area, in Cenon. This is the sixth school in France and the 28th around the globe.
The implementation of Holberton in Bordeaux is a strategic geographic choice that covers the strong local demand for jobs in tech. Furthermore, there is a lack of project-based programs, which makes the Holberton methodology very unique and groundbreaking in the region.
“The rapid deployment of Holberton School in France responds to the strong tension around digital professions: 350,000 positions are to be filled in the sector! Julien Cyr, founding member of Holberton and CEO of Holberton France.
Led by Actual Group, this campus counts on the support of local partners in the education sector that complement their offering with tech-related programs. The Actual group is the 5th player in the labor and employment market in France.
Holberton School Bordeaux will be directed by Baptiste Rousseau, former consultant specialized in digital transformation at Deloitte. Located opposite the “Jean-Jaurès” tram stop in Cenon and in the immediate vicinity of its train station, the Girondin campus of Holberton will welcome its first students on June 5, 2023.
