Four reasons

people choose Product School over Project Management Institute (PMI)

Our courses are laser-focused on Product Management, honing your skills to perfection. While Project Management Institute (PMI) may offer courses oriented to other fields (project management, agile, etc), we keep putting 100% of our focus on Product. We believe that is the way to earn your next job or promotion.

At Product School, personal time with instructors isn't a luxury but a guarantee. Our hands-on, activity-based learning ensures you interact inside and outside class. This is about practical education and interactive mentorship. No mere spectators here.

Success isn't just about learning; it's about growing your career. While others stop at education, we equip you with the tools and strategies needed for your next job or promotion. Career support is a key component of your professional growth.

We are the biggest Product community in the world. Our extensive network opens doors to our alumni worldwide, fostering connections and job opportunities. Beyond graduation, our career support ensures you're guided every step of the way to achieve your goals.
