In developing this Product Management program and curriculum, Merrimack College worked to identify skill gaps that professionals were encountering in product management careers. Having a detailed understanding of the common technology, software systems, and product life cycles is critical to empowering product managers to perform efficiently within their roles.
Program faculty understand the importance of how business analytics drives organizational decisions and strategy, and they also see how the interaction and motivation of cross-functional teams are vitally important to success. The Product Management program focuses on these key skillsets to better prepare students to advance within or enter a product management role immediately.
Merrimack faculty are industry experts within today’s business environment, so in addition to teaching the concepts in the classroom, they share best-practices and challenges from experience in product management fields. In addition to being invested in seeing students succeed, our faculty work to ensure students are prepared to address the challenges of tomorrow by understanding the demands in the market today.
