I’ve been a Product Marketing Manager since 2016 and I’ve always found it amusing that I’ve literally never taken a single marketing class in my entire life (during my first interview I remember wondering what the interviewer meant by “key visual”)
So I was pretty excited to attend Marketing Academy, an annual training program for Googlers at the Wharton School in UPenn
College was a looonnnggg time ago but I’m pretty sure I was rejected by Wharton when I applied for their undergraduate program, so…who’s laughing now?
Sadly, still me as I come to the realization that I would probably still get rejected by Wharton if I applied for their MBA program
Now that Module 1 is over (Module 2 is scheduled for November) I thought a great way for me to really learn the content is to summarize and share key takeaways externally (in the form of these posts) and internally (presentations to Googlers who didn’t attend)
(Note: this article will be a work in progress until Module 2 is completed so bear with me)
