The core program spans over a period of four (4) months and will be conducted in our Lagos or Benin facilities. This will be followed by a two-month internship.

Decagon boasts a network of more than 1000 former students who are employed at leading technology companies, such as Interswitch, Microsoft, and Flutterwave.

Decagon's alumni network is a key strength, as DecaDevs form enduring connections that continue to support each other's growth and success.
