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

Behind Every Great Product is a Product Manager: CMU Computer Science & Business
Product Managers are now as in-demand in the tech sector as software engineers once were, and they now command among the highest salaries in U.S. technology companies. These specialists who shepherd new products and releases to market are often called the CEOs of products and services. But finding good PMs – those with excellent technical chops, interpersonal skills and business acumen – can be beyond challenging. And according to Burning Glass Technologies, more than 250,000 positions were open in the last year for hybrid jobs – occupations requiring a combination of programming skills and skills commonly found in design, data analysis, and marketing.

Two Deans from Carnegie Mellon Univeristy — Bob Dammon, dean of the Tepper School of Business and Andrew Moore, dean of the School of Computer Science, will be at THE HIVE for a Think Tank event on Thursday, July 6, starting at 6pm to discuss the power of these two schools coming together to collaboratively educate a new breed of Product Managers.

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.
