Graduate Minor in Project Management

About the Program

Project management focuses on the management of teams of people and other resources in the planning, design, execution, and implementation of various aspects of projects in practically every industry.

The Graduate Minor in Project Management (PMGM) is designed to support the growing need for project management graduate education. It provides students with the skills necessary for successful professional and leadership careers in the rapidly expanding field of project management.

The graduate minor in Project Management will provide a foundation for graduate education in project management and prepare interested students to pursue the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® or Project Management Professional (PMP)® credentials from the Project Management Institute (PMI)® .

All courses in the PMGM are offered online, twice each academic year, in alternating terms, except PROJ 501 - Introduction to Project Management, which is currently offered in the Fall, Winter, and Spring terms.
