Event Details

Have you ever wondered what exactly a “Product” person does? Join us for a panel discussion with Yale alums as we try to define and understand one of the most nebulous, important, and cross-disciplinary roles in the technology industry: Product.

For people interested in breaking into product from technical and non-technical backgrounds, listen to a diverse group of panelists discuss how they entered product roles and learn more about how the role differs across technology companies.

For seasoned product managers, meet peers and exchange thoughts on what it takes to be a successful product manager.
