In today’s fast-paced business environment, companies succeed or fail based on their ability to bring quality products and services to market on time, on budget, and within specifications. Organizations in every industry recognize this, and a resulting shortage of talent has created expansive career opportunities for knowledgeable project managers.

The Master of Science in Project Management, accredited in 2009 by the Project Management Institute’s Global Accreditation Center (GAC), is designed to provide you with the theoretical concepts and practical skills you need to lead complex projects successfully—from initial planning, budgeting, and negotiations through project oversight and final evaluation. Complementing the degree curriculum are concentrations that enable you to expand your knowledge within your field of interest.

Program Objectives

  • Effectively manage multiple, sometimes interrelated, complex projects
  • Implement enterprise-level project portfolio management (PPM) based upon an organization’s strategic business goals
  • Avoid common project management pitfalls
  • Develop metrics for determining and reporting project performance
