Program Overview

Product managers are the glue that bind the many functions that touch a product—engineering, design, customer success, sales, marketing, operations, finance, legal, and more. They not only own the decisions about what gets built but also influence every aspect of how it gets built and launched.

The role of the product manager is expanding due to the growing importance of data in decision making, an increased customer and design focus, and the evolution of software-development methodologies.

However, getting into product management is tough and requires a complete mindset change. This can not happen in few months and you can not become a product manager unless you have been there done there.

That’s why we have designed this APM or Associate Product Management fellowship program so that you can gradually transition into a product management role with APM as the first step.
