“How we infuse technology and data into organizations has changed. With so many tools available, it can be a struggle to find the right solution that meets organizational needs. We need a new way of managing the design, development, and implementation of technology-based business capabilities.

The Smith Master of Digital Product Management teaches students modern management practices that improve the connective tissue between the technology organization and other functions of the business. The result is a collective digital expertise to build meaningful technology and data-driven solutions that change the way the business interacts with customers, employees, and partners.”
