Hear From Our Students

Kavindra, Senior Product Manager, Oracle

"Drives First Principle Thinking"

Kavindra, Senior Product Manager, Oracle

“The course blasted the myth that building features is biggest work in product management. The other part which I liked is that it was more of practical and less of theory oriented stuff.”
Amit Samant, Goldman Sachs

"Practical Frameworks"

Amit Samant, Goldman Sachs

The course greatly exceeded my expectations. It covered the absolute fundamentals of a PM role such as using solid frameworks that you can bank upon to define your product, developing personas and user stories, understanding metrics, product marketing, PMF etc.
