Description

The Product School is a Los Angeles-based education program offering product management courses. The Product School teaches students how to build software products, along with full stack product management and leadership. The 40-hour programs result in a certificate in one or more areas—product management, full stack product management, and product leadership. The Product School designed its courses for career-training, and courses are available in-person at the Los Angeles campus, online, or in 15 other North American cities. This adult education program specializes in helping people gain additional certifications to advance their careers and train for promotions.

Additional Info

The Product School’s primary offering is certification-based training. The goal of the programs is to educate students and equip them with one or more certificates related to product management and leadership. The part-time courses at the Product School aim to teach students the fundamentals of product management, then give students the opportunity to expand their skill set in additional courses such as full stack product management and product leadership. Many instructors at the Product School currently work at large tech companies such as Uber, Facebook, Google, Spotify, and Amazon, and aim to bring their product management expertise to students through experience.

The class schedule at the Product School varies based on what courses students opt to take. However, all classes at the Product School in Los Angeles are part-time. The Product School puts emphasis on students’ ability to attend classes without compromising their work schedule. Class schedule options include 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM on Saturdays or 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Additionally, the Product School has rolling start dates. All Saturday classes feature a one-hour break during the day.

The Product School does not explicitly publish job placement statistics. Instead, it specifies which companies’ employees come from to receive additional training. Many individuals attend the Product School to gain additional certification in order to qualify and train for promotions. Additionally, students can attend the program to gain additional skills to manage their own businesses and seek higher income in a different position. The Product School states that students should attend the program to level up their careers, gain industry validation, and affirm their expertise. Students at the Product School work at companies such as Airbnb, Apple, Amazon, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google, Netflix, PayPal, Spotify, and Uber. 

Tuition prices vary depending on what program students choose. The lowest-priced course offered by the Product School is product management, which costs $3,999 for two months of part-time and ‘hands-on’ training. The full stack product course at the Product School is a four-month part-time program, and the full price of tuition is $6,999 to $7,999, and the five-month product leadership course costs $9,999 to $11,999. Payment plans are available for the full stack product management and product leadership courses. Monthly payments for the full stack program start at $179 per month, and payments for the product leadership course start at $249 per month. Interest-free financing is available for both programs.

    I just finished my Product Management class that I took at Product Management School in Bellevue Washington. I definitely feel like it was worse my time and the money I have invested in it. The class was twice a week in person for 8 weeks. I really liked the in-classroom interactive learning process. Almost every class, we had guest speakers from different big companies such as Google, Amazon, IBM, Best Buy and more. Us students had live Q&A sessions with the PMs where we could ask them any questions directly and get the answers right away. Throughout these 8 weeks, we have worked on a homework assignment which was an entire product that we had to build from the ground up. My teacher Swati was excellent at clarifying all the gray areas to me, answering all my questions, directing me to the right path, proving all the necessary tools for the interview preparation and much more. I could tell she was really invested in her teachings and truly was enjoying it which always makes the learning process so much better. I have already recommended this course to my colleague who trusts my research and knows that I would only recommend the best.

    Product school (www.productschool.com) has a curriculum. The course touched upon many topics right from user persona, interviews, design, A/B testing, metrics, marketing, and the entire product development life cycle. You have to choose a product that you like and work on providing an opportunity hypothesis and launch that idea to market. All of this is done in 8 weeks with the help of the instructor and the lesson notes. Everyone chooses different products (mostly). Some are B2B, some are B2C, some are SaaS and some were PaaS products. At the end of the seventh week, we all presented our product-> idea-> Go-to-market strategy.

    I liked every bit of the class and the assignments. But the question mostly asked that did it help you find jobs? I would say it helps you build your network and learn a few product management fundamentals. I am in the process of looking out for jobs now.

    I will list out the pros and cons of the course now.

    Pros:

    A good outline of the 8-week course.
    Great instructors.
    Extremely active slack community.
    Free networking events and webinars by reputed and established Product Managers.
    Cheaper compared to General Assembly.
    ProductCon is a great conference to meet and network.
    Cons:

    Less focus on product management interview preparation. I wish they had a couple more weeks to cover more on this.
    Overall a great learning experience. I recommend to someone pivoting from another industry into product management and looking to network.

    I enrolled in Product school shortly after taking on a PM role at my current job and found it very helpful. The Product School curriculum packages the product life cycle into a simplified form that is easy enough to memorize but robust enough to apply when confronted with a mental roadblock. The lectures cover all aspects of their framework and augment the curriculum with additional tips that really empower you to tackle the demands of a career in product.

    I decided to attend the course in person on Saturday mornings and while that may sound like a drag I actually found myself looking forward to it knowing how much I was learning by applying what we learned to case studies. The lectures and case studies were very engaging!

    The instructor for my cohort was Dr. Joel Palathinkal who was very energetic for Saturday mornings! He always came in ready to tackle the days lecture and share product idea/experiences and challenged us to think on our feet. I truly appreciated his approach to teaching the course as it was very dynamic in that he covered everything on the syllabus but reacted to our input and tailored the lectures to focus on what students wanted to expand on. Joel went above and beyond by reaching out to his network of alumni to bring in guest speakers for every lecture. I can be a bit shy but he’s really cool and approachable making it easy to feel comfortable participating.

    One of my favorite things about Product School is the Slack channels that offer a network where you can get help on a range of things from the need of advice from a SME to interview prep and even job leads! Whether you are new to product or early in your career I highly recommend the Product Management Course by Product School!

    Taking Product School’s PM course has been one of my best career decisions so far! Switching careers, when you are already well established in your current role, can be quite a daunting task. So it was imperative for me to learn from the best and get the right level of support to break into product after completion of the course. I am so happy that I chose this as it delivered and exceeded my expectations from the course!

    A few aspects that make this stand-out course are the thoughtful curriculum that hones student’s hard and soft skills, the access to an ever-expanding and helpful alumni group and, most importantly, the mentorship from your instructor during and after your course.

    It was a privilege to be taught by Chris Maliwat – a PM veteran with solid experience in eBay, Netflix, Warby Parker and start-ups . Chris’s passion for his craft, teaching and mentorship elevated the entire experience for our group. He truly cares for his student’s career growth and it showed in his engagement with our group right from the very beginning. He is a phenomenal teacher and a great mentor, and I look forward to his guidance as I take next steps into becoming a PM.

    I highly recommend Product School’s PM course for anyone seeking to transition into product or improving PM skills to become better in their role. It was totally worth the time and investment! Thank you Product School, you guys are doing an amazing job!

    I wanted to learn more about product management in order help me transition into the field. Went to many of their events and decided to enroll into the course. Loved the experience b/c our instructors were all real practitioners and we went through the entire product management cycle learning a ton along the way. Highly recommend this school if interested in product management.
