The Master of Science in Program and Project Portfolio Management is intended to better prepare project professionals for success by providing a natural alignment to the professional advancement that exists within the industry—from project manager to program manager to portfolio manager. The coursework will support project professionals in being prepared to focus on formulating strategies appropriate for changing and disruptive market conditions, prioritizing and funding the appropriate initiatives and/or projects, successfully executing initiatives and/or projects in order to deliver strategic results, and using the lessons from unsuccessful strategy for strategy formulation. This program seeks to bring together and train students in those skills that are most critical: program and portfolio management processes and tools, financial analysis, strategic and leadership skills, and communication skills and strategies.

The program is available for professionals with 3+ years of project management-related work experience. You must be able to articulate your role leading a team and creating key project life cycle deliverables from project initiation through closeout. If you do not meet this criteria, you may want to consider applying to our MS in Project Management program.
