MANAGEMENT STUDIES

Choosing the correct certificate depends upon a few factors: Pursuing a degree? If you do not plan to earn an academic degree, the Project Management Certificate Program (Noncredit) is a quick and convenient way to gain a basic understanding of the five project management processes and to learn about project management. If you are considering a degree, you may have the option to complete a for-credit Project Management Certificate en route to earning a degree. If you already have a degree and an interest in gaining an understanding of project management processes and best practices, the noncredit certificate program is a convenient way to increase knowledge of project management with minimal time commitment. Need financial aid? Only for-credit PM certificates qualify for financial aid. Need to know the time commitment? Typically our for-credit certificate programs can be completed in six to eight months. Our noncredit certificate program can be completed in as little as eight weeks. Seeking PMP certification? Both the for-credit and noncredit certificate programs are aligned to the standards as set forth by PMBOK 5. Our Project Management Professional Test-prep course complements our certificate programs and helps prepare you to sit for the PMP certification exam.

Job Opportunities

Project managers are an asset to organizations of all sizes and complexities because they tackle projects faster—and with fewer resources. Organizations have long valued professionals with project management skills, experience, and credentials, like the Project Management Professional (PMP®). In fact, the Project Management Institute's (PMI®) PMP® certification has become the gold standard throughout many industries. It has even become a requirement for advancement. Whether gaining a PMP® credential is your end goal or not, the Certificate in Project Management program will equip you with a deep understanding of the PMI's® Project Management Body of Knowledge 5th Edition (PMBOK®). You will be able to immediately apply the project management principles you have learned here to your own projects and teams. Our Certificate in Project Management is perfect for new project managers, project management professionals without a PMP® credential, or professionals searching for a solid and practical introduction to the project management body of knowledge. In this 5 day intensive course, you will learn the project management methodology and standards required to manage projects successfully. (We also offer the PMP® Exam Prep course, dedicated to helping project managers become credentialed by the PMI®).
