  • Deferred Payment Plan arrangement is a binding contract between a Learner and PL where the Learner need not pay any upfront Training Fee, except a fully refundable deposit to ensure his/her seat in the Executive Diploma Program. However, the Learner binds himself to pay the full Training Fees as detailed herein only when the Learner achieves the desired mutually consented career outcome.
  • Detailed Terms and Conditions are in the Learners Agreement which will be shared with you after your application screening is approved.

Learner must follow the requirements mentioned below:

  • Weekly commitment of 6–10 hours
  • Adherence to timelines: Completing all the assignments given by the mentor as per the shared timelines and attending all the mentor support calls

Yes, you can join the Executive Certificate Program that will include the first 12 weeks of academic and extensive career preparation. The fee for 12 weeks of Executive Certificate Program is INR 2,50,000. It is not a job guarantee program.

If you have fulfilled all the course requirements and yet you were unable to get placement during the program duration, the course is free for you.

You do not have to pay any fee upfront. You pay only when you get your desired outcome via Deferred Payment Plan. We only request for a fully refundable deposit of INR 50,000 to reserve your seat, as we have limited seats. This is adjusted in the final dues. Once you achieve your outcome, you pay us INR 5,20,000.

Absolutely not. We advise you to have a detailed discussion about your career and job offers with your career mentor depending on various factors like market situation, your short term and long-term goals, learning curve, type of company, etc.

We receive hundreds of applications for a small cohort. Hence, we request only serious professionals with a long-term commitment to product management to apply for this program. Any learner leaving the program midway is a seat wasted which could have been utilized by other deserving candidate in the waitlist. Hence, you will be charged based on the duration spent in the program. The clauses around fee, default fee and discontinuation are covered in detail in the learner agreement that will be shared post your selection.

We accept corporate sponsorships and can assist you with the process. For more information, you can connect with us at admissions@pragmaticleaders.io

Flipped Classroom


Our learners learn by discussing and debating on real-world problems and are actively involved in the solution design process.

Conventional classroom

Sage on Stage

  • A teacher shares the knowledge via live presentations
  • Teachers are at the center of the learning and considered sage on stage
  • Knowledge transfer is one-way and the focus is on knowledge retention
  • Learners don’t get to discuss their ideas or opinions in the class
  • Hence, most learners are unable to apply these concepts in their everyday work life
  • Great for scenarios, where knowledge acquisition and retention is the only focus

Flipped classroom

Guide on side

  • Learners are the center of the universe
  • Classes are meant for healthy discussions and debates on topics
  • Learners go through the material on their own provided by the mentors
  • Mentors work as guide on the side, with the learners
  • Learners develop skills on problem solving, critical thinking and self-learning – the 21st century skills that employers look for
  • Great for scenarios where application skills matter
  • 21st century skills require guide on the side. Simply acquiring knowledge is worthless now.
