How You Learn

Following a one-week opening session at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, the Master of Digital Product Management program is delivered using Smith’s well-established and highly effective virtual learning platform.

A dynamic virtual learning experience

Smith School of Business is at the forefront of delivering business education in dynamic and engaging virtual formats. With state-of-the-art technology—including a dedicated, interactive teaching studio—we have been delivering outstanding business education to the classroom, the boardroom and the desktop for thousands of students for more than a decade.

Throughout the program, the classroom will be set up as a virtual learning studio, where teams will experience active and accessible learning through approaches that include (but are not limited to) visual collaboration, play and hands-on design activities.

Personal Development & Team-based Learning

Reflecting the way business works today, Smith School of Business uses an innovative approach to learning that enhances understanding of group and cultural dynamics, builds self-awareness and effectiveness, and develops understanding of how business teams can perform best.

In both physical and virtual contexts, team-based projects are used to build and strengthen these skills.

A dedicated, professional Team Coach is assigned to every program team. Throughout the year, they will monitor your team’s effectiveness and provide regular feedback and guidance that is pivotal to the learning process.

You will be provided with proven processes and best practices for overcoming any obstacles that may arise during the year.

“The best product managers are able to think strategically about business and market direction, while holding technical credibility on details with engineering and development teams. Investing in developing product managers into cross-functional leaders is important, since it's unusual for individuals to inherently have these broad skill sets and experience.”
