Program Description

Project managers organize and manage resources to take projects from initial concept through to successful completion on time, on budget and in conformance with customer requirements. They are often hired as contracted Project Managers. As an incumbent, they may be assigned to lead a company project. Because of the challenge of project constraints such as project scope, time and budget, they must be detail-oriented and have strong leadership and management skills. The Project Management Course Series (MAN 927) satisfies the Project Management Institute’s (PMI®) educational requirement to apply to take the Project Management Professional (PMP®) Certification Exam. The Certification Exam Preparation Course, MAN 077, is appropriate for those already accepted by PMI® to sit for the exam.
