Why Study Product Management?
Product management is a complex and multifaceted field, which encompasses every aspect of the product life cycle. From initial conceptualisation to development to marketing to ongoing analysis, the product manager takes ownership of the product’s performance from start to finish. Irrespective of whether the product is a physical commodity or a digital asset, their responsibilities and ownership remain unchanged. To become a successful product manager is to gain access to a broad and diverse employment market worldwide. Not to mention, competitive earnings and the opportunity to climb the career ladder to executive status.
Oxford Home Study Centre is proud to offer an exclusive range of product management courses, open to candidates worldwide with no entry requirements to fulfil. Course content is delivered over a series of three insightful modules, which conclude with online assessments your assigned tutor will mark and return with helpful feedback:
Unit 1 - Product Development and Product Life Cycle
The course begins with a detailed discussion of the product development process, along with each component stage of the product life cycle. Candidates consider the importance of product innovation, the most common reasons for product failure, how to generate new product ideas and the importance of appropriate concept development and testing.
Unit 2 - Product Pricing Strategies
Module two turns attention to strategic pricing, discussing the objectives of pricing strategies and the various factor that can affect price determination. Candidates learn how to consider the value of the product or the buyer, important legal considerations and the concept of cost oriented pricing. The concept of ‘going rate’ pricing is also introduced and examined.
Unit 3 - Marketing your product
Concluding the course, module three guides candidates through the process of creating, implementing and continuously optimising a marketing strategy. A detailed breakdown of the marketing process is presented, along with the cornerstones of effective consumer and market analysis, how to carry out SWOT analysis and more.
