This section has testimonials from current students and alumni.

  • While project management focuses on managing to a plan, delivering something on-time, and on-budget, product management focuses on delivering the right thing to users based on understanding their real needs. So it doesn't really matter if you deliver on-time and on-budget, if it's the wrong thing.”

    Kelly O’Connor, Faculty Product Management
