HANDS-ON BOOTCAMP OVERVIEW

Transform into a Confident, Effective Product Leader

Unfortunately, to fast-track your product career, theory is not enough.

You need to build real, practical experience.

Prod MBA is a part-time, hands-on product bootcamp where you'll build a real product from zero to revenue.

Through the experience, you'll gain the confidence & an adaptable product playbook to have huge impact in any role & on any product you work on.

100%

OF YOUR MONEY BACK

If you're not happy with any bootcamp, we refund 100% of the cost.

OUR GUARANTEE

Not Happy? Get Your Money Back.

Through Prod MBA, we guarantee you will:

  • Become part of the rare few product leaders managing with a proven playbook for success (it's estimated 85-90% of products fail)
  • Learn how to launch a profitable product for £50, rather than £500k, to unlock new - or leverage existing - opportunities
  • You’ll learn key skills to become an effective product leader, such as product strategy, product discovery, stakeholder alignment & leadership techniques
  • Find a new, more senior role, if that's your goal. It's not uncommon for a PM or PO to get a Senior PM role & £80k salary after graduation.

We are so confident in our extremely hands-on approach that we offer a 100% moneyback guarantee.

That means, if you request a refund, you will receive it immediately, no questions asked (valid up to end of Week 2).

We are the ONLY company that offers this, as our completion rate & customer satisfaction scores are so high (I've never seen Reforge, Product School, Mind the Product, etc., even post their success metrics... 👀)

CURRICULUM

A Radically Hands-On, Modern Curriculum

To become a true leader, you need to understand great theory. We agree. But to get real value, you need to put that theory into practice, in the real-world.

Product is messy & nuanced. That’s why everything we teach you is designed to be as hands-on & actionable as possible, so you are able to actually put it into practice, whether developing new - or improving existing - products in your day-to-day role.


Build a Real Product & Present A Case Study

As well as mastering your own product playbook, to really internalise everything we teach, you will be building a product with real target customers, real users &, in many cases, real revenue.

You then present that process & the outcomes you achieved in a final case study in Week 8.

YOUR TEACHER

Prod MBA Is Not “Just Another Course”

"Learning product is a scam. You pay $10k for a course just consisting of overly-theoretical videos & "live" sessions with 200 students sitting on a Zoom call, or spend $60k on an MBA that is completely out-dated!

We don't worry about "famous" teachers or brand names. Our success comes from a laser-like focus on putting cutting-edge theory into practice. To help you navigate the messy uncertainty of doing product in the real world. (something books & YouTube videos can't help you with).

180 happy alumni later, with zero funding, shows we are doing something right.”

Bootcamp Alumni

Meet our Prod MBA Alumni

We're proud to work with aspiring product leaders, from founders to product leads, startups to corporates. We look for ambition & grit from bootcamp applicants, rather than years of experience.

"I spent SO MUCH time searching for courses, classes, etc., but all were too basic or too theoretical.

The Prod MBA learn-by-doing approach was refreshingly different - and effective.

Since completing the programme, I apply the playbook in my daily work, gaining more product success in less time through greater focus, getting a pay rise and being far more confident in selling my product internally to stakeholders. "

"I found myself Head of Product with little product experience, as part of a Y Combinator-funded startup, Floatpays. The change meant two things, I needed to skill up, and I needed to do it fast.

Since the bootcamp, I now have extra tools in my arsenal that allow me to confidently assess new opportunities, tie strategy to execution & have a strong sense of what is important to focus on."

"I had reached a bit of a plateau in my product education & felt putting skin in the game would help me more than any book or talk.

Since Prod MBA, I have a distilled playbook of product discovery tools & techniques I understand how to apply - and do so in a way that stakeholders can rally around."

"When my product actually generated revenue in Week 6, I realised how much I had progressed! I realised I was able to take something from start to finish in 6-8 weeks & achieve my initial goal of creating a revenue-generating product - whilst learning some new skills along the way."

"I used to really lack confidence in my role. Both in terms of how to have impact, but also how to take the next step in my career as a Product Owner. I am so much more confident since joining the programme! I even got a new role as a Growth PM. I’d never even thought of this as an option before, but I’m loving it!"

"The hands-on experience of actually bringing a real product to life was amazing. Fun & so useful for learning how I should approach existing products in my current role."

“Prod MBA's hands-on approach has really helped me grow as a product leader.”

“Prod MBA completely changed my mindset from just execution to being truly product-led.”

"I loved the mixture of independent study & live tutorials. Really helps the learning process."

"Great product frameworks. All easily accessible in Miro & super actionable in my product work."

"Prod MBA is a well-organised step-by-step process. You know what you need to do, when - and why."

"I loved the community supporting you on your product journey."

"I loved that it pushed me to change my mindset to understand my target customer and deliver value to them in a more effective way."

"Mixing individual progress with the outcomes up to you, with the support & accountability of the cohort was awesome. I always felt we were helping each other & providing feedback when needed."

“Before Prod MBA, even as a Head of Product I used to try to do too much & lacked a clear strategy to deliver value to customers & to the business. I've since used the MVO framework to completely realign my company around a billion dollar idea.”

“My confidence in guiding decision-making process grew from day 1! Apart from helping me patch knowledge holes, Prod MBA enabled me to experience the full product development process in a safe and highly motivating environment.”

Not necessarily, although we only take on less experienced applicants if they show grit, determination & strong product potential.

1. If you present a strong business case to your boss, many companies will cover the cost. We suggest using this template to maximise your chances of getting approval.

2. If you must pay yourself, you can split payments over 3 months (or 12 months for UK-based students). Please mention which option you would like to take when you apply.

It's also worth noting that a majority of students get a 20+% pay rise within 12 months, so you will make your money back within a few months.

Quite simply, our focus on hands-on, actionable learning. Great theory is an essential foundation, but real experience is only built in the real world. That's why we get you to build a real product with real users and, potentially, real customers.

"Live" classes with over 200 people? No contact with mentors? That's not how you learn effectively. Sure, you'll cover some interesting theory with Reforge, but nothing compares to the confidence & impact you will gain by building a real product from zero.

Not convinced? Not only do we publish our completion rate & customer satisfaction scores, but we also offer a 100% Moneyback Guarantee if you're not happy.

Yes, although this should never be the reason to join the programme. You will become a great product leader through experience & getting out of your comfort zone, not adding endless certifications to your CV.

We usually take 20-30 students per cohort. However, each live session has only 10-15 students. A small group means accountability, genuine support & a strong bond with your cohort.
