Project man­age­ment has become a crit­i­cal skill in every work­place. Man­agers need the tools, tech­niques, and knowl­edge to han­dle projects and deliv­er suc­cess­ful out­comes. Whether you are man­ag­ing small or large projects, learn how to plan, exe­cute, con­trol, and most impor­tant­ly, deliv­er results.

Through a set of three two-day work­shops, you will work through an entire case to learn prac­ti­cal skills and knowl­edge that can imme­di­ate­ly apply to your cur­rent projects. Cours­es cov­er project man­age­ment prin­ci­ples, project scope, doc­u­men­ta­tion, esti­mat­ing and bud­get­ing, sched­ul­ing, resource lev­el­ing, risk, man­ag­ing stake­hold­ers, and communication.

This series is designed for pro­fes­sion­als in entry to mid-lev­el man­age­ment who are begin­ning to man­age small or large projects as part of their cur­rent role. Stu­dents may come from a wide range of employ­ment sec­tors, includ­ing pri­vate, gov­ern­men­tal, and edu­ca­tion­al organizations.

The series is com­prised of three two-day work­shops, each of them designed to stand alone in pro­vid­ing spe­cif­ic project man­age­ment skills. Work­shops can also be tak­en togeth­er to pro­vide stu­dents with a com­pre­hen­sive project man­age­ment skill set. We rec­om­mend that stu­dents take the cours­es in this order: EXMGT 5427, EXMGT 5443, EXMGT 5444

Upon com­ple­tion of this series you can receive 39 elec­tive cred­it hours in the Man­age­ment Devel­op­ment Cer­tifi­cate program.
