The combination of video presentations and related weekly assignments were most valuable to me as I was able to extract and apply useful information as an exercise, but then also in professional practice.
The vast experience of Professor Sawhney - his huge variety of examples truly brought the concepts to life!
The expertise of the instructors, their interest in hearing from students and the level of engagement they provided was exceptional. This is the first online course I've taken and I really enjoyed the flow along with the course modules, assignments and real-world examples.
Sessions with Professor Sawhney were great to deepen our understanding in the content, and use cases covered in the entire module. I learnt some very new frameworks - JTBD, how to expand the market and get new non-users as well as exploring product opportunities in the over-served market. In general, this program has helped me to understand how to approach a product management and strategy role.
