PDMA Student Membership
Get the tools you need to graduate and help pave the way to success
If you aspire to develop and manage products in any industry, start laying your professional foundation today.
PDMA offers Student Membership to those who are currently taking classes related to product development and are not employed full- time. A copy of a current school-issued class schedule is required to document your student status. Student Memberships are subject to PDMA approval.
As of 2016, PDMA offers three years of free membership to students located in PDMA International Affiliate locations.
You will receive education through the PDMA Annual Conference, subscriptions to Visions magazine and Journal of Product Innovation Management and ongoing learning opportunities. But most importantly, you will learn from a community of accomplished practitioners who provide insight on everything from basic product development and management concepts to broad overviews.
PDMA membership is a unique opportunity to prepare for job searches and network with others in the industry.
Join today and create momentum!
To begin the membership application process, you will first need to identify if you are based in the United States or internationally.
