I just completed the Level Up course from the Product Academy. I've learned so much valuable skills that I directly can apply to my job as a Product Owner. It was a combination of Mentoring + Coaching and classes. The Product Academy offers a network of experienced product people from around the globe that will help you develop your career the way you want it. For anyone thinking about signing up: Do the exam as well. It gives you another opportunity to learn and apply the knowledge you just gained. (Product Owner at Crowdhouse in Zurich)

Amazing experience with product professionals from many different areas. I did the Level Up! Edition in 2021 and have learnt way more than expected! I really recommend it to everyone starting their career in Product!

Michal-LevelUp! Mentoring

I attended the LevelUp trainings as a product owner. The workshops were useful, fun and interesting and the homework were demanding and extremely valuable. I totally recommend any product person with a "growth mindset" and a desire to expand the network to join the program.

Product Academy is the best Swiss school for Product People who would like to up-skill in Product Management.

Pia Joëlle-LevelUp! Mentoring

I recently started the product academy with a couple of inspiring womens. In a short amount pf time Tanja and all the speakers, coaches and mentors delievered a very high value. This value was big to both subgroups: new and aspiring product managers and product managers with more experience. The combination of homework, group excercises during the day and time to reflect at the end, makes this learning journey incredible powerful. I recommend to work with Product Academy, if you are looking for a steep learning curve to improve your skills and wisdom in product.

Petriina-LevelUp! Mentoring

Product Academy's courses are so valuable for every product manager who wants to up their game! Level Up was the best professional thing that happened to me in 2020! The support in this program is above and beyond from Tanja, the coaches and mentors as well as the peers! From every workshop and piece of homework I gained new approaches to my tool kit as a product manager!
