Certificate in Product Management

Georgetown's Certificate in Product Management prepares you to deliver high-quality digital products to your users and customers.

Our cross-disciplinary program combines product management, design, and engineering. You'll develop the skills needed to ship successful products using modern tools and methods, including human-centered design, agile and lean management methods, and continuous integration and delivery. Throughout the program, you’ll also work with classmates to design and deliver minimum viable products (MVPs).

In the classroom, you'll learn from seasoned faculty members, who incorporate real-world examples, lessons learned, prestigious guest speakers, modern tools, and industry expertise into their lessons.

You’ll leave the program as a more effective, strategic, and confident product manager who understands how to create an organizational culture that enables small, empowered teams to quickly and effectively deliver value.

  • 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. There’s very little value in delivering something on-time and on-budget, if it's the wrong thing.”
