This program is designed for college and university students to enhance their education and acquire the skills to meet the growing demand for project managers in the global economy.

Efficient project management has become a key element in the success of today's organizations. Professionals in this field help to drive innovation and growth within the organization and facilitate the successful completion of projects. The increasing complexity of today's business environment requires a focus on business basics and well - developed project management skills. There is a globally accepted skill base required for effective project management. The content of this program aligns with the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) as defined by the Project Management Institute (PMI®), a worldwide industry organization association that maintains standards and credentials and certifies project management professionals in 185 countries.

Program courses are designed to guide students in the development of technical project management, leadership, organizational, interpersonal, meeting and presentation skills. Students will be introduced to traditional project management techniques as well as those from Agile Project Management and Lean Six Sigma standards.

Successful completion of this program will prepare students to pursue project coordination, leadership and management roles with organizations in a wide variety of sectors including business, technology, health care, engineering, government and not for profit. Typical positions for graduates of the program may include:

  • Business Analyst
  • Project Analyst
  • Project Control Analyst

  • Project Leader
  • Project Manager
  • Project Officer
