Studying Product Management at Aalto University
Product management as a role and a function
At Aalto University, product management is approached as a professional role and as an organizational function. Companies need skilled professionals who can lead products. In addition to individual skills, product management requires a compatible and supportive organization design. No amount of skill can counter dysfunctional design.
We are currently developing teaching and research that approach product management both as a role and as a function. In terms of the role, we aim to find ways to teach and promote the tools and concepts that individual products managers can use to create and maintain coordination among the multiple stakeholders within design, marketing, business development and product development. In terms of product management as a function, we explore new topics both in teaching and in research to understand and evaluate organisations and their approaches and competences in product management.
