BPMA & MIT — So, You Say You Want to Be a Product Manager?

February 7 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


So, what does a Product Manager do anyway?

Join MIT’s School of System Design and Management (sdm) & the Boston Product Management Association (BPMA) for an evening to demystify the career of Product Management.

We’ll hear from a series of great speakers on the following topics:

  • What skills do product leaders lean on to get their job done
  • How much of their toolkit was acquired academically vs on the job
  • What would they go back to school to learn if they could
  • Do these skills change from industry to industry — Healthcare vs Hardware vs High Tech

You can take these learnings and apply them to your job, regardless of the stage of your career:

  • What skills should you continue to sharpen
  • Should you take a class or volunteer for a challenging project at work
  • How should you balance your hard vs soft skills toolkit

Join us for an evening of drinks, food and speakers from a variety of industries who have real-world experience. They’ll provide their insight and guidance on what to it’s like on the other side and how to break into this particular space.
