How Important Is Startup Experience vs MBA by Google Product Manager

March 14 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The journey to becoming a Product Manager is often unconventional, but it becomes all you focus when you determine it is for you. We will discuss the two most common paths, MBA and startups, while also exploring alternate opportunities that have proven equally as successful. I’ll include real world examples that will focus on the unique benefits of each option, with an opportunity to answer your questions. Everyone’s path is unique, and there is no one right way but there is a way that may be better for your situation.

Main takeaways:
-MBA is as much about networking as it is education
-Startups foster a large, but often unfocused, range of experiences and opportunities
-Planning two steps ahead is often the most valuable
