At one time, or another, most business professionals will need to complete a project, serve on a project team, or possibly lead one or more projects! Employers are looking for proven ways to both increase revenue and to create internal efficiencies, and successfully completing projects can help meet both of these goals. Be prepared to master the discipline of project management by earning the graduate certificate in project management. Our curriculum involves an introduction to project management, as well as courses focused on the planning and execution phases of project management. We use textbooks, and other content, based on PMBOKR (Project Management Body of Knowledge). Our team of instructors hold the PMPR (Project Management Professional) certification and bring years of managerial experience to the classroom – you’ll learn not only theory, but how to apply the concepts, in the real-world.
According to the PMI (Project Management Institute) the project management profession is an area with continued growth. In the next few years, the project management profession will grow by 33 percent. Additionally, the project management profession will outperform the total job growth which will create millions of new positions that pay highly competitive salaries. In the United States, from 2017–2027, more than 60 percent of the 214,000 new project management jobs annually will come from the management and professional services sector.
