About this programme

The award-winning partnership with the software technology sector has enabled the development of a curriculum which combines application to practice and learning from theory.

 

Participants learn from live case studies, visualisation techniques and group exercises. The sharing of experiences and challenges with fellow participants from a diverse range of companies keeps the process dynamic and engaging.

 

Company-based assignments are embedded in coursework at both diploma and masters level. This serves the needs of the product manager in their day-to-day role by addressing live challenges in the workplace. It also generates an immediate return on investment for participating companies.

 

To deliver this one-of-a kind learning experience, we have brought together a unique international faculty of renowned scholars, thought leaders, bestselling authors and leading edge practitioners.

 

The postgraduate programme is delivered part time over 12 months and begins in September 2020.

Course Content 

 

What do Product Managers do?


The role of product management is to optimise the performance of the product, or product line.

 

Product managers work at the confluence of the business, the market, and technology and development teams.

 

Product Managers make a vital strategic and financial contribution to the goals of the company. They are often considered the CEO of the product and are responsible for products across the entire product lifecycle.

 

Product managers typically come from engineering, technology, innovation or business development backgrounds and typically have a number of years work experience in their market or domain before assuming a product management role.



 

“The application of programme learning to live challenges in the work place delivered immediate benefits for me and my employer.

Among the many concepts that I was introduced to, business modelling and portfolio mapping were applied with great results.”

Mark Hill, Vice President Product Management and Design, Kitman Labs
