Our Product Management course is designed to ensure students are able to apply their learnings in a real world context.
Learn how to be a successful Product Manager while working on a real project brief from a local startup. 10 weeks part-time, two evenings a week.
During the ten week Product Management course we will cover a variety of topics including defining the role of a product manager, research tactics, business model design, measuring success, and user experience (UX) – all of which play an important role in ensuring that your product will be successful.
The course features a client project with a local startup, which students work on independently.
Students will learn how to develop and deliver solutions using popular frameworks. They will also learn how to implement best practices, create roadmaps, understand metrics and KPIs and how to plan development sprints. Stakeholder management is also a popular topic, along with presenting your ideas and pitches.
The final project is presented in person to the entire class with the startup team present. Students are asked to deliver a presentation summarising their journey, process, and work throughout the ten-week course.
Learn by Doing
We’ll cover the concepts, but also demonstrate the exercises and methods successful Product Managers use daily to push our products forward and make sure they’ll succeed and stand out. Students will enjoy a mix of lectures and workshop time, where they will get to practice these methods and then apply them to their projects.
The final project is presented in person to the client, where students deliver a presentation summarising their journey, process, and work throughout the ten-week course.
In order to encourage discussion and collaboration we limit our class sizes to 8 students.
