Behind Every Great Product is a Product Manager: CMU Computer Science & Business

A new 12-month master’s degree program at Carnegie Mellon University – a Master of Science in Product Management (MSPM) – aims to help fill the need for product managers by teaching computer scientists and engineers how to become expert product managers.

Launching in January 2018 at CMU’s Pittsburgh campus, the 12-month master’s program will provide both the technical skills and business acumen students need to be successful in this high-demand area, including a required internship and capstone project to inject the practical skills needed.
