Programme Overview

McKinsey & Co describe Product Managers as mini-CEOs* and rightfully so, given today's dynamic business environment. With the accelerated pace of digital transformation, data-driven insights, emphasis on design, and high customer expectations, product-centric management has emerged as the hottest profession today.

IIM Kozhikode's Product Strategy programme provides a comprehensive blend of both data-driven insights and strategic product understanding, coupled with effective communication and management. Become an industry-ready product manager and leader with proficiency in developing a business model with a customer-centric, value-driven product at the centre and efficiently navigate each stage of the product life cycle.

As part of the programme, you will also get access to Emeritus Career Services, which empowers you to manage your career proactively.
