For too long, product management has been a role that so many of us “fell into” by chance or accident, and certainly didn't have training or dedicated programmes like this career accelerator to guide the path there.’

  • An academic transcript (a minimum of an undergraduate degree)
  • A 1-2 page CV demonstrating no less than 2 years of work experience, a supporting letter from your employer (if available)

Supporting documents required:

  • A 500-word personal statement answering
  • A copy of your proof of identity in the form of a passport/drivers license or birth certificate
  • Language proficiency test results (if you haven’t completed university study in English)

What is the role of the industry and employer partners?
