MS in Project Management

Project managers are change agents who make project goals their own. They use their skills and expertise to inspire a sense of shared purpose within the project team. They thrive on new challenges and the responsibility of driving business results. Project management is designed to provide today’s project managers with the tools to balance the complexities of modern project management. These include identifying business value, risk, quality, safety, cost, finance and technology.  This MS degree will prepare professionals with the skills to plan, to execute and to manage projects of any type or size in any industry. The MS will also prepare students for the certificate examination as a project management professional of the Project Management Institute (PMP Certificate).

Most students with a business background can complete the degree by taking 10 courses.
