Product Managers don't just ask "how", they ask "why".

The success of a product relies on a whole bunch of different specialities – software engineers, designers, marketers – and it’s the job of the product manager to bring them all together into one seamless union. Even if your goal isn’t to launch a product or start your own business, the product management skill set will teach you to approach problems using a business, technology, and design mindset.

"The Product Management course was challenging and rewarding in the best ways. I couldn’t have been more prepared by my teacher to apply my newly acquired knowledge during the internship. I roadmapped three separate products, developed customer journey maps, user flows, use case diagrams, and in depth competitive analyses."

After completing iXperience, I have found that product management is definitely something I see myself doing in the future, and not only have I gained the knowledge to be able to do this, but I have also gained an extremely talented network and helpful mentors to guide me along the way.

iX gave me the opportunity to study abroad and explore an amazing city, while deep-diving into a new skill. The class was very unique and you wouldn’t get the useful and real-world knowledge at your home university.

The Product Management course prepared me tremendously for my internship at Aerobotics. Our instructors taught us hard skills such as how to create product roadmaps and build use cases for a product, while enabling us to communicate effectively between engineers, executives, and business managers to ensure a product rolls out on time.

I have had numerous professors and teachers throughout the years, and none of them were quite like my teacher at iX, Johann. His teaching style - pushing us to our limits - and unwavering work ethic have inspired me to never be complacent again. I have learned so much in such a short period of time!
