Technical Program Management with Microsoft

Only teachers, counselors, or adult staff members at a school can sign up for IGNITE events. If you are a student, please let the IGNITE Educator at your school know that you are interested in this event. If you don’t have IGNITE at your school, please email to get started!

Educators, be sure to take our short 2022-2023 educator training before signing up for this event.

Technical Program Managers are leaders in product innovation, and there is a good chance you’ve never heard of them! Students will learn how Technical Program Managers use their STEM backgrounds to help engineer solutions to modern problems. If you are interested in the management side of STEM and enjoy the satisfaction of problem-solving, join workers at Microsoft as they share their stories and provide a hands-on look at the role. 

Microsoft’s mission is to enable people and businesses throughout the world to realize their full potential by creating technology that transforms the way people work, play, and communicate.

This event is available for students in grades 4-12 as a Virtual Work-Based Learning Experience.
