Product management is among today’s most desirable skill sets, often serving as a direct path into executive leadership in organizations and making or breaking success for entrepreneurs. In this program, you will develop the product mindset needed to bring viable products to market. The courses are designed to give product managers a deeper understanding of what it takes to bring a product from idea, to launch, to future iteration.

You’ll have the opportunity to learn important facets of product roadmapping decisions and prototyping through a number of product management activities, including how to partner with designers to create codeless prototypes.
