How IIT Delhi’s New Product Development and Management programme will help transform your career

For businesses to scale and deliver top-tier user experiences, they must deliver high-impact products that achieve desired outcomes and delight customers. But developing, launching and refining products that can strategically grow a business is not easy. It needs professionals with product-centric thinking, a clear product vision, and the tools and resources to work with cross-functional partners.
The need for the rapid adoption of digital products has accelerated the digitization of experiences by at least 3 to 4 years ( McKinsey Report, 2020). A resourceful product manager, therefore, is an indispensable part of an organisation — anchoring product goals and guiding decision-making through changing customer expectations.

If you are keen to up your product management skills and make the next move in your career, IIT Delhi has the right programme for you. The New Product Development and Management programme will teach you not just product deployment, sales, marketing and commercialisation but also give you hands-on experience in state-of-the-art product conception, design and prototyping for both engineering and digital products.

This programme will give you a practical and hands-on learning experience with real-world case studies, tutorials and assignments. Designed for participants from both technical and non-technical backgrounds, and taught via live online sessions with esteemed IIT Delhi faculty, this 5-month programme will provide a thorough understanding of developing and managing products, and disruptive business models & innovation techniques.

About IIT Delhi

The Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT Delhi) is one of the 5 initial IITs established for training, research and development in science, engineering and technology in India. Established as College of Engineering in 1961, the Institute was later declared as an Institution of National Importance under the “Institutes of Technology (Amendment) Act, 1963” and was renamed as “Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi”. Since its inception, over 48,000 students have graduated from IIT Delhi in various disciplines including Engineering, Physical Sciences, Management and Humanities & Social Sciences. Of these, nearly 5070 received PhD degrees. The rest obtained Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Engineering, Sciences and Business Administration. These alumni today work as scientists, technologists, business managers and entrepreneurs. There are several alumni who have moved away from their original disciplines and have taken to administrative services, active politics or are with NGOs. In doing so, they have contributed significantly to the building of this nation, and to industrialisation around the world.
