Course overview

Get the tech skills, career advice and networking opportunities needed to advance your career in Product Management, in ten weeks.

General Assembly’s Product Management short course is designed to help you balance business viability, technical feasibility, and customer desire to lead products and features toward long-term success. The short-course is led by instructors who are expert practitioners in their field.

By completing this course you will learn the end-to-end product management (PM) process to a real-world scenario, from evaluating users and managing a roadmap to creating a minimum viable product (MVP) and developing metrics.

What you'll learn

This is a beginner-friendly program with no prerequisites, although students may have had exposure to product development concepts or be informally taking on Project Management responsibilities in their current role. Throughout this expert-designed program, you’ll:

  • Determine key risks and assumptions of a product in order to prioritize research and discovery work
  • Validate hypotheses by gathering user feedback via MVPs, interviews, experiments, and testing
  • Execute competitive research to highlight market gaps and trends
  • Speak fluently with developers, user experience designers, and other business stakeholders about priorities, requirements, and workflow
  • Apply metrics alongside objectives and key results (OKRs) to measure a product’s success and track its life cycle
  • Apply what you’ve learned to create a portfolio project: a presentation detailing your product creation strategy
