Product Management

Translate Opportunities into Profitability

Overview

5-day in-person program

The Product Management Certificate Program is a five-day, immersive, in-person training experience. Before you arrive, we include a six-week online component (set aside about two hours per week for this), including customized video lectures and readings, discussions with your new classmates, colleague surveys, exercises, and a simulation game.

The program combines the latest in Design Thinking with the best of the Berkeley-Haas MBA program, to prepare you for your role: understanding your customers’ environment and needs, designing customer experiences, boosting your team’s performance, and mobilizing your organization to take action and develop a competitive advantage. 

Dr. Sara Beckman, who has led the program since 2006, continually updates the training program to reflect the latest research and industry best practices. Along with all program faculty, she maintains a consulting practice, to stay up-to-date on current issues facing product managers and companies like yours.
