Originally applied to fields such as engineering and construction, project management techniques are now widely used across numerous industries, including: information technology, product development, aerospace, manufacturing, energy and utilities, supply chain management, financial services, public administration, and many others. There is a current and growing demand within organizations for project managers who can control the triple constraints of project scope, schedule, and costs - to deliver what is required, on time, and within budget.
The Advanced Certificate in Project Management develops students’ knowledge of and ability to apply project management standards, techniques, and practices while studying within a rigorous academic framework. The program helps graduates pursue careers as project managers in fields such as: information technology, financial services, construction, management consulting, government, non-profit and health care.
- Gain comprehensive knowledge of project management practices and techniques;
- Understand communication and leadership fundamentals as they apply to real world problems;
- Learn the basics of project management software and how it can be used to manage the triple constraint; and,
- Recognize the importance of ethical project management and understand how unethical practices can lead to project failure.
The Advanced Certificate in Project Management will help program graduates who want to pursue careers as project managers in fields such as: information technology, financial services, construction, management consulting, government, non-profit and health care.
