The importance of project management has grown substantially in the past decade as the size and complexity of projects have increased. Projects are often delivered late (or not at all), and budgets are exceeded, which affects profitability. These difficulties underscore the need for well-trained, certified project managers. The graduate certificate program will provide you the foundation necessary to plan for these difficulties and achieve success as a project manager. With a graduate certificate in Project Management, you'll have a set of skills and knowledge that prepares you to excel at managing projects as well as prepares you for the international Project Management Professional (PMP) exam and the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) exam (if corresponding elective taken).
