About the course

Effectively managing a product team, leveraging design thinking, and understanding a product lifecycle is good business. Centering the customer experience and creating a compelling product narrative is great business.

Product Management Studio is an immersive online product management training where you will master the skills needed to create product teams and experiences that balance customer empathy and data-based decision making. Get ready to dive into the elements involved in product management and develop a strong sense of pricing strategies, portfolio planning, the business model canvas, and negotiation tactics.

This product management training is led by Faculty Director and Earl F. Cheit Faculty Fellow at the UC Berkeley Haas School of Business, Dr. Sara Beckman. Under her guidance, you will move through a dynamic and flexible online learning experience designed to inspire idea generation and explore how to measure innovation capability. The eight weeks are thoughtfully created to include video lectures, live faculty teaching sessions, team activities and discussions, pragmatic assignments, coaching from a product management professional, and an interactive simulation.
