FAQ - Course Questions
1. Who is the Product course for?
First and foremost, the course is suitable for beginning Product Managers and those who want to switch over to this profession.
We start from the ground up and sequentially structure your knowledge on product management, subsequently solidifying it with practical assignments (after each lecture).
The course is also great for Mid-level Product Managers wishing to close some of the "gaps" in their knowledge, as well as gain experience and useful work templates from PMs from other companies.
2. How long is does it take to finish the course and is it possible to do it faster?
The course is designed to be completed over 6 months, based on the average speed of 2 lectures per week (+ assignments).
At the end of each lecture, the student must complete a practice assignment. When the assignment is successfully completed, the next part of the program becomes accessible. This approach ensures that you maintain the motivation to move on and ensures that we have provided you with all the necessary knowledge to go on to the next lesson.
However, you are free to move at your own pace: move ahead of the program at some places, and slow down at other (for example, during a vacation). This will not affect the speed of verification of your assignments or working with your mentor
3. Are there any satisfaction guarantees and what is ProductStar known for?
I (Mikhail Karpov) am a public figure and, as the creator of ProductStar, assume full responsible for the quality of the courses with my reputation on the line – a reputation which I value greatly.
If you wish to find out about the quality of our courses, the easiest way to accomplish this is to contact our students. Over the course of 3 years, over 2000 people have completed our course and we are always happy to hear their feedback and observe their career growth.
Some of this feedback can be read here: перевод отзывов

4. Can I pay in installments and how is this arranged?
Yes, we provide students the option to pay in installments in the form of a monthly payment spread over the length of the course.
Generally this option is somewhat more expensive than paying the entire amount of up front, so it is up to you to choose the most appropriate payment method.
Bear in mind that this is not a bank-enforced installment plan. You would be paying directly to us once a month during the learning process, and you don't need to sign any documents before or after the course. You are free to stop the learning process at any time you wish.

FAQ - Platform and Content Questions
5. How do you help students with employment? Do you issue a certificate or diploma?
If they wish, every student has the option to give us his or her resume, which we place into a folder along with all the other students' resumes (who have chosen to hand one in). This folder is regularly accessed and reviewed by representatives from our partner companies with the goal of finding new employees.
Also, the aforementioned partner companies analyze your course scores (given for practical assignments) and attend students' graduation project defense sessions. With this information in hand, they select the best students for potential employment opportunities.

Aside from this, we help students professionally prepare their resumes (using our experience and recommendations of leading experts from industry-leading companies), as well as conduct test interviews (so that you get some practice and receive useful feedback before you move on to a real-life interview).

Thirdly, our practical assignments are based on real cases from major companies, so it will be easier for you to understand how the companies operate at the interview.
It's important to note that you will meet many leading specialists in the field during the course and show them the results of your practical work. There are often been cases when specialists have evaluated students' skills, and have invited them to join their team after the course.

Generally, most of our students are hired for product management positions before the course even ends, but if you have difficulty finding a job in the industry, we will take an individual approach to helping you, with the help of our HR department and existing networks :)

As for the diploma, due to the fact that ProductStar is recognized by most of the companies on the market and we have worked (or are currently working) closely with them, our diplomas carry their weight and are taken into account during the employment process.
A sample diploma can be found here:
6. What do the practice assignments and the graduation project entail?
After each lecture, you will have to complete a practice assignment (in other words, Homework).
Each assignment usually takes about an hour or two to complete, after which, you submit it for review and receive feedback and correction recommendations.
The graduation project will be a culmination of all the skills you've learned by completing homework assignments.

The cases that the practical assignments are built upon are actual cases from real-world companies, meaning you will be working on cases from services such as Google, Amazon, Kotak, Gojek and various other industry leaders, in order to better understand the challenges that these companies face.

The most useful practice is to gain first-hand experience using real-world tools. For this reason, we provide access to already configured services throughout the course (Google Analytics, Tableau, Miro, Unit Economics templates, A/B test calculators, etc.)

The best part about the assignments is that you don't have to "huff and puff" your way through them alone; the speaker from the lecture will also help you get through it. For most tasks, we record an applied workshop (with the lecturer) for the homework – first he/she completes it, and then you are given a similar task as the HW assignment.

To switch things up, you will also complete some of the assignments in groups. This will help keep your motivation up, as well as gain valuable experience from the course's other students (there will also be a group Telegram chat for speakers and students where you will always be able to ask questions and exchange useful knowledge).
7. Will the course materials be updated and will they be accessible after the course is completed?
Yes, we know that many courses suffer from the problem of quickly outdated or obsolete information as a result of the materials not being updated.
However, we guarantee that our course materials are frequently updated to market demands and innovations.

We also support all students after the end of the course:
- you will have personal access to all course materials after you've finished the course;
- you will have access to our community and the speakers will continue to answer your questions.
8. What does the platform look like? I want to take a look at it before making a purchase.
The 6-month course includes several themed sections (they can be studied in more detail in the course outline), each section is divided into several lectures.

Each lecture consists of:
1) Table of contents: so that you immediately have a structured view of the materials
2) Video materials, broken up into 10-15 minute segments
After each segment, there's a quiz to solidify the newly acquired knowledge + additional materials
3) Also, the speaker conducts a workshop with screen-sharing for the practice part, so that you can watch how professionals work on cases from real-life situations
4) After having studied the workshop, you will have to perform a similar task on your own. In order for you to use the newly acquired skills, we provide templates for completing the practical work (which will also be useful in complete tasks in your actual job)
5) Next, you will receive feedback on the results of your practical assignment and proceed to the next lecture

You can watch a sample lecture by following this link:
https://productstar.org/cases/prioritization
9. Will I be able to communicate with lecturers? Will there be a community for students?
We believe that communication is an important part of the learning process, which accelerates your development.

Therefore, the following will be available during the course:
- a group Telegram chat with the course's speakers and students
- individual communication with a mentor
- individual verification and feedback for practice assignments

Also, our course comes with a guarantee that course materials are frequently updated as well as support for all students after the course is completed:
- you will have personal access to all course materials
- you will have access to our community and speakers, who will continue to answer your questions

"ProductStar" Course Reviews
I really like the quality of the lecture materials, and especially the way the organizers and guest lecturers structured their experience into the presented lessons. I also like the fact that speakers have different views on product management, and have a wide variety of experience and specializations in the industry, because this allows the students to form their own understanding of the profession.

Very useful and practical course! NPS-9 (so that there is room to grow on the second go :)) It's incredibly important that you can listen to and chat with great experts, learn about some interesting cases, ask any question you want after lectures and ask for further materials if you want to immerse yourself deeper into the topic, all without interfering with your day job. If I had to describe the course in 3 words, they would be: structure, communication, and growth!
Artyom Nuriev (listener)
Senior marketing analyst, ivi.ru
An excellent collection of topics that are founded in what is actually useful in real-life work, not just textbook outlines of product management. There are many industry professional speakers who talk about the various processes in the different companies where they work and share their personal experience in solving various real-life work problems. They also pay close attention to questions and break them down incredibly well - you really get in-depth answers. If you don't have much practice, or if you would just like to become a product manager in general and immerse yourself in the profession, I recommend this course!
Product Manager, 2GIS
Very cool course! Misha and Roma are incredibly positive people and are very responsive - they will always answer you and advise you. The difficulty lies in coming up with a good question! :) I really like that there are many different lecturers from different fields, and each has their own experience and opinions. I think this really helps to see things from different angles. I would love to see more analyses of specific cases, but, of course, I can always ask for them. Thanks!

The best way to gain a better understanding of something is to explain it to others, so I was glad that I could participate as a speaker. The format of the webinar is unconventional, but observing other speakers showed me that you can receive plenty of useful feedback from the audience if you proactively engage in a dialogue with your listeners.

I really enjoyed giving lectures in this course. First of all, it was interesting to work on the materials. And secondly, the lectures have amazing group dynamics, and an inspirational atmosphere in general. The way it was organization, and the platform itself - everything worked perfectly.
