Testimonials

"If you want to be challenged by colleagues from the industry and dare to bring yourself to the next level of knowledge and skills, I found Berkeley the place to be! The amount of strategic and practical new insights was mind-boggling. The data-driven approach to product in combination with the qualitative techniques has helped me a lot in bringing my applicable knowledge to the next level"

Interim Executive and NED, VGRIP

"There's no question in my mind about the value of this program. The insight and understanding I received as a result of attending and engaging will more than pay for itself in my daily office activities. I expect this to appear in the form of process improvements, time-value allocation and better customer understanding."

Product Manager, ConnectWise

“I have been interviewing customers for a few years now, first as a UX Designer and now in a more specialized customer research role. This course helped me refine my approach, by applying a thoughtful structure to my customer interviews and informing choices I used to make based on instinct and best guesses. This class was immediately applicable. What I learned in the classroom on Thursday morning I was able to apply later in the afternoon both as a practitioner and as a manager.”

Customer Research, McMaster-Carr

"The Product Management program is an in depth, comprehensive, and practical treatment of product management. This program has equipped me with ready-to-use knowledge required to either work as a product manager or work closely with product managers. I have already started applying several concepts I learned in competitive strategy, customer focused product design and team negotiations as we are defining the next major version of our product."

Principal Member of Technical Staff, Oracle

"The UC Berkeley Product Management Program is an outstanding course that covers all aspects of product management in great depth, and has provided me with a much greater understanding of the requirements of the job. The standard of presenters was exceptional, and certainly far higher than on any other business program that I have attended. I would strongly recommend this program for all product managers in all industries."

Director Global Third Party Software Product Management, Hitachi Data Systems Limited

“From the pre-work all the way to the final week, Customer Obsessed Design was the most rewarding and engaging virtual course I have taken. Rich live sessions combined with actionable practice homework as well as amazing additional group sessions meant that you definitely can find the learnings that you seek.”
