Getting things done in the business world takes a can-do attitude — and lots of organization. In as little as seven months, our Project Management Certificate can equip you with the skills to help organizations plan, execute and complete big initiatives. And since courses are just 5 weeks long, they won’t get in the way of your busy life.
This course examines project management roles and environments, the project life cycle, and various techniques of work planning, and control and evaluation to achieve project objectives. The tools currently available to project managers are illustrated in this course through the use of Microsoft® Project software.
This course introduces students to the planning phase of project management. Students will discover the connection between strategic portfolio management and project management. Other topics include project-based versus non-project-based organizations, activity planning and sequencing, human resource planning, communications planning, and project management planning.
This course explores the procurement planning process, contracting methods and phases, outsourcing, contract administration, and the external environment of the procurement management processes. The course also addresses risk management applied to both project and procurement management processes.
To be successful, project managers must analyze alternative project decisions by relying heavily on project estimating and control tools and techniques. This course provides students with the skills required to plan, baseline, monitor, analyze, and evaluate project performance. Students work in groups to analyze program parameters and work situations.
This course provides students with an overview of organizational behavior as it relates to project management. It introduces various techniques and processes that will help students develop effective communication and interpersonal skills to successfully manage project teams. In addition, numerous leadership and motivational theories are presented as well as techniques that minimize stress in the project environment. Furthermore, project decision-making processes and techniques that facilitate effective and efficient project change management are addressed in this course. Students will also examine the influence of globalization, technology, and future trends in project management.
This course is the capstone of the Professional Certificate in Project Management. Students will demonstrate project management knowledge learned throughout the Project Management Certificate. Students will develop and deliver a project plan and presentation of that plan to the executive board in a role-play environment.
