"I was taking a technical expertise course, but I took a strong interest in the product management module. We learned how to start the project, plan the development process and build a business model for the product. I even came up with ideas for my own projects."

"After only a month of studying, I was given a new position and a salary 30% higher. I thought the program would just give me new skills, but it gave me so much more — a full set of tools and knowledge to launch new products or even start my own business."
