The 24-credit graduate PM certificate (8 courses) focuses on the core competencies recognized by the Project Management Institute (PMI). The PM certificate can be completed in 18 months by enrolling in 2 classes per term. 

Why Project Management?

Effective project management is essential to all organizations. Project management involves planning, organizing, securing, and managing the resources necessary to bring about the successful completion of identified project goals and objectives. 

In December 2013, PMI reported that salaries for project managers continue to grow, as does the high demand for talent. 

Who Should Enroll?

The PM certificate is ideal for individuals who are required to manage projects but possess a limited understanding of project management as a discipline.  Courses are designed to familiarize students with the many facets of project management to enable them to transfer the knowledge acquired to project management positions in private industry, the not-for-profit sector, as well as in local, state, and federal agencies. Completion of the PM certificate demonstrates evidence of specialized educational achievement in project management.
