Product Management

  • Cost: $6,000
  • Duration: 6 weeks
Locations: NYC
Course Description:

Product Gym is a 6 week - Product Management Course designed to transition working professional into a product management career. The goal of Product Gym is to equip students with the necessary tools to make informed decisions about the day to day working schedule as a PM. At the end of this course, students will be able to confidently build a product roadmap and define the MVP, identify the key languages needed to build this software, and articulate a specific use case in their background that is relevant to product management.

Simply put, Product Management is fundamentally a mix of soft skills and technical skills where you will eventually sit at the intersection of all the stakeholder departments at your company. To be successful, you need a firm understanding of who those stakeholders are, what their role is, how product managers currently interact with them, and the level of domain knowledge you need to know about their role.

The best way to achieve this level of understanding is to hear directly from those stakeholders. Product Gym not only sources the best product managers as instructors, but also subject matter experts that will be your peer and counterparts in the companies you eventually work at.

"If you want a product role, follow the PG guidelines!"

The only question you need to ask yourself for any program - did the program lead to one or more job offers or did you just learn some theory (and are still having conversations with recruiters trying to convince them about various certifications)? I... Read More

"It’s a gym for (aspiring) product managers. If you are committed to workout hard, you grow to build the muscles that are essential to your success in getting offers."

Overall, it’s been a good and transformative experience for me. Most of all, I value the sense of community, specially among the fellows in the same cohorts, and to a lesser extent but still existing, among all members. The strategies that PG teaches... Read More

"The only program helps you land a PM job"

I came from a finance background, and I was able to receive my first offer within 3 months after joining the program. The process works only if you fully trust the program and put all of your hard work into the process. PG really did a great job covering... Read More

"The process works!"

Their tips and recommendations felt counter-intuitive to me and go against what I typically see on job hunting recommendations online....and that's likely why their process is so effective. I immediately saw a 5X jump in responses for phone screens after... Read More

"I didn't think I'd get as far as I did"

Product Gym's strength is that they provide a very thorough framework and comprehensive set of product classes that promises results if you stick with the plan. I was initially skeptical but was finding that I was unable to get results on my own. I had... Read More

This place is truly like a gym. I struggled in the beginning. I applied to many places and got rejections for many of my applications. I used to take it so personally and this affected my confidence but the community and logic behind the process was my strength. Eventually I started getting requests for interviews. I stumbled in these interviews, but as I did more, I got better. I got more confident. I relished in my failures and learned quickly. I started to get a feel for my identity as a product manager and how I could sell myself. Each interview equipped me for the next regardless of the result.

In about 7 weeks, I got my first offer. I am in the process of trying to secure more for the right role for me. I will admit, it's a very exhausting, personally draining process. There's so much room to doubt yourself and your worth. Imposter syndrome is very common. Having peers that are doing the same process and knowing that you're not alone helps so much. Having coaches that can provide feedback is invaluable. Having a framework to refer can give you hope. I honestly didn't think I'd get so far after potentially considering that I should give up. I'm glad I signed up.
