The MS in Project Management will prepare professionals with budgeting, leadership, communication, and organization skills. Students will learn resource allocation, time management, strategies and negotiation, initiation and planning, implementation and closure.

Qualified Project Managers are an invaluable asset to any business, non-profit agency or corporation. Graduates can secure positions in education, government and community affairs, engineering, computer and information systems, healthcare industries, construction, corporations and most other industries. The global economy is becoming more and more interdependent and a degree in project management teaches versatile skills enabling professionals to move fluidly between industries. Project managers are in very high demand across all sectors.

A critical part in the development of a student’s Constructive Action (CA) is the field placement. Students will be required to apply what they have learned in the classroom with experience in real-world situations, companies or organizations. As such, they must identify their proposed venture for their Constructive Actions. In the three CAs of the proposed curriculum, students will acquire basic research techniques and methodologies necessary to explore and analyze trends and needs, relate those needs to their respective proposed professional venture, develop a comprehensive strategic plan, and finally set in motion their respective entrepreneurial plans by identifying sources of financing and evaluating their success and failures.
