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.
Includes industry insights, a detailed course and program outline, and more.

I’ve been teaching in various programs at universities for 20 years. I love the exchange with critical thinkers, and eternal learning. Products drive business and as a PM, you’re at the front-end of that.
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.
I had no prior knowledge with Product Management but I now feel I have the tools to help build this into an actual career. It seems applicable to every work force which is really exciting.
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!
The skills and tools I learned in the PM class will be remembered and applied for the rest of my career. It was an honor learning from industry experts.
