Course description

The Executive Certificate in Project Management

Project management has become the business world's most sought—after skill set. As business environments become more complex, organizations are challenged with addressing a seemingly unlimited supply of new projects with fewer resources. Increasingly, a greater reliance is placed on project managers to help organizations ensure approved projects are not only delivered on time and within budget but more importantly - project results must accomplish strategic objectives. Despite this growing need for project managers, keen competition is expected for project management positions. Candidates who are certified, or have specialized training and industry experience will realize the greatest opportunities to advance and succeed. Small and large organizations alike will benefit from employees who have the critical knowledge needed to lead successful projects!

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, as project management becomes more widely-recognized, employers across industries are seeking employees with project management skills. Further, those with project management skills are proven to be of greater value to organizations as they coordinate and implement projects which benefit the organization as a whole.

Florida Atlantic University offers a wide selection of in-class and distance learning project management training programs, ideal for learning comprehensive project management methodology, preparing for the CAPM®, PMP®, PMI-SP®, PMI-RMP®, PMI-PBA®, and PMI-PBA®certification exams, or maintaining your certifications with specialized courses for project management professionals who would like advanced training or need to meet continuing certification requirements.
