The CRO Minidegree was great.
I previously took the CRO certification from Digital Marketer, and holy crap was I not prepared for how little I knew about CRO before enrolling in CXL Institute’s CRO Minidegree.
I thought I learned a lot, but when I saw what CXL Institute offered vs what they had… it was clear to me that what I thought was a pretty decent course was really something that just covered the tip of what your program touched on.
