The Company

Founded in 2014, Product School provides product management training to professionals across the U.S., Canada and UK.

With 14 campuses worldwide, the school offers specialized Product Management, Coding, and Data Analytics classes, taught by real-world product managers who work at top technology companies such as Google, Facebook, Snapchat, Airbnb, LinkedIn, and Netflix.

Unlike MBA programs designed for students seeking roles within the finance and consulting fields, Product School’s curriculum is highly relevant for the next generation of technology leaders, with classes offered at a fraction of the cost. The Product School curriculum is designed to fit into work schedules with small classes held in-person at night or on weekends to ensure that both instructors and students can maintain their full-time jobs.

More than 5,000 students have taken Product School courses to learn how to build software products, secure the metrics needed to make data-driven decisions for digital products, and manage technical teams through rigorous hands-on exercises and case studies. Through lectures and panel discussions across campuses, and a variety of other forums, including the ProductCon series, the world’s top product managers visit Product School to provide invaluable real-world insights into critical management issues.

Product School prepares students for product management interviews and enables them to expand their professional network through access to a private community of 20,000 alumni, including mentors and hiring managers from top technology companies.

The School also offers the curriculum via corporate training programs for employers seeking to advance the product management skillsets of their existing teams.
