Event details

Have you heard of the Product Manager? They’re the mini-CEO whose skills sit at the centre of all activity, productivity, and positive change of a physical or digital product. Some would say the most successful tech companies like Apple and Google have the best Product Managers in the world: individuals who really know how to bring the best products to market and constantly iterate on them.

 

And these Product Managers didn’t just stay in one domain; with the skills developed in this role, many Product Managers have moved on to larger responsibilities. Marissa Mayer (the CEO of Yahoo) and Sundar Pichai (the CEO of Google) both began their careers as Product Managers at Google.

 

The most flexible aspect of this role is that it provides such a depth of skills across all spectrums, opening up a different way of thinking and creating a problem-solving mindset which you can apply almost anywhere. If becoming a Product Manager sounds like the next step in your career, then come along to our Product Management Course Info Night.

 

You’ll get first-hand experience from an existing Product Manager about what it means to work and succeed in the industry, and why Product Management sets you up to understand the path of entrepreneurship more deeply than most career paths might. You’ll also gain insights on the exciting market opportunities that exist in this field and will have the opportunity to take a peek into the daily routine of a Product Manager.

 

In this info session, you’ll learn more about Academy Xi’s incredible Product Management course and see if it’s the right fit for your next step.
