PGM Code – 292D 

Program Description The Project Management Certificate is designed to give experienced students a strong competency in project management that they may apply to both employee and management-level positions in almost any field. Project management is a skill set that is in high demand. Students learn to manage short-term projects, including planning, building and working with teams, creating schedules, allocating resources and budgets, monitoring and troubleshooting problems and changes. Building these skills through this certificate will increase students’ qualification to enter or advance into management roles in business, and a variety of specialty fields.

The certificate requires students to work with a Business Management adviser to select those courses which will help students achieve their educational and career goals. Courses from this certificate may apply to one of the Business Management Department’s associate of technical arts degrees. Many courses are available online.
