Where do I get my Product Management or Product Marketing degree?

Good question.  You may be hard pressed to find anything from academia.

I was lucky about mid-way through my career to work for a company that realized this, so they sent me to a series of training programs from the folks at Pragmatic Marketing.  They actually have an article that discusses this topic in greater detail:

“Product Management is not a job for which people can go out and get a degree. You can get a degree in Computer Science that covers the knowledge you need in order to start out as a programmer. You can get a degree in Marketing that gives you the basic foundation to get started in Marketing or Advertising. But there is no college-level degree in Product Management, as far as I know.”

Pragmatic Marketing has become, I believe, the de facto leader in providing training in this space and Steve Johnson is an entertaining instructor who essentially helped change my career path.

More on this to come….

  1. If you are about to release/launch a new product onto the market then one of the best ways that can provide you the better outputs is product marketing. It’s a great way to market a product for a specific area or globally.
