I think that's called an outer product:

mv = Array[m, {5}]
nv = Array[n, {3}]

{m[1], m[2], m[3], m[4], m[5]}

{n[1], n[2], n[3]}

Outer[Times, mv, nv]

{{m[1] n[1], m[1] n[2], m[1] n[3]}, {m[2] n[1], m[2] n[2],
   m[2] n[3]}, {m[3] n[1], m[3] n[2], m[3] n[3]}, {m[4] n[1],
   m[4] n[2], m[4] n[3]}, {m[5] n[1], m[5] n[2], m[5] n[3]}}
