The Company

Founded in 2014, Product School is the global leader in Product Management training with a community of over one million product professionals.

Our certificates are the most industry-recognized credentials by employers hiring product managers.

All of our instructors are real-world Product Leaders working at top Silicon Valley companies including Google, Facebook, Netflix, Airbnb, PayPal, Uber, and Amazon.

With live online courses starting every month, it’s easy to find an option that fits your schedule. Classes are held in the evenings or on weekends to ensure that both instructors and students can maintain their full-time jobs.

Unlike traditional MBA programs designed for students seeking roles within the finance and consulting fields, Product School’s certificate programs are highly relevant for the next generation of software product leaders, and offered at a fraction of the cost.

Students enjoy a healthy mix of group activities, real-world case studies and hands-on mentorship.
You’ll learn how to build digital products from end to end, lead cross-functional teams and land your next product job or promotion.

In addition to classes for individuals, Product School offers bespoke training to Fortune 500 companies seeking to upskill their existing teams or onboard new talent.

We are committed to pushing the product management industry forward. With this aim in mind, we published the Amazon bestseller, The Product Book, host over 1,000 free events per year, The Proddy Awards, and ProductCon, the largest multi-city product management conference in the world.
