With foundational learning, flexible scheduling, and hands-on experience with industry tools, the Product Manager Certification is designed specifically for students who have never held a job as a Product Manager.
But our goal isn’t just to teach you how to be a great Product Manager—it’s to help you become one. Which is why the PMC offers additional support for students, from mentorship with Product School experts to interview practice to resume prep with your instructor. All so that when you receive your certification, you have everything you need to land your first PM role.
