About the Program

While project management has been around since the 1950s, the field has experienced an explosion of growth, both in the number of project managers being employed and in the expectations of the industry. Not only is work becoming more “projectized,” but also more organizations are using project management to achieve business results. This requires a solid foundation in business fundamentals, communication, and leadership, as well as skills in program management and portfolio management.

The Graduate Certificate in Project Management is designed to support the growing need for project management graduate education. It provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary for successful professional and leadership careers in the rapidly-expanding field of project management and will prepare students to pursue the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® or Project Management Professional (PMP)® credential from the Project Management Institute (PMI).
