Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study - Search by Pathway


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, and as an incumbent, they may be assigned to lead a company project.  Strong leadership and management skills and attention to detail are needed in order to address the challenges of project constraints such as project scope, time and budget. 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.
