The business environment is successful through the complex combination of many different elements. The business student may choose to concentrate in the area of project management to supplement the core business curriculum. Project Management is the study of planning, organizing, motivating, and controlling resources to achieve industry specific goals.

A project is a temporary endeavor, constrained by time and available funding. Projects generally have to completed in a definite time frame as well as meet the specific goals and objectives. A successful series of temporary projects helps build the constant growth and evolution of a long standing business organization. The management of individual projects requires the advanced development of distinct technical skills and management strategies learned from earning a degree in Project Management.

A project manager oversees the conception, planning, design, execution and completion of all elements within a project. Projects vary from industry to industry, so specifics cannot always be applied across the board. A project manager must manage critical tasks throughout the projects duration, these tasks include but are not limited to: defining goals, creating and maintaining schedules, establishing and monitoring budgets, delegating tasks to other team members, monitoring project process and actual deadline completion.

The need for a well-trained and educated Project manager is increasingly in demand. Almost every industry has a need for project managers, and most will choose from individuals with experience, education, certification, or a combination of the three. The specialized education and work experience, will give students with a degree in Business/Project Management the ability to secure positions in operations management, supply chain management, business administration, or another area of business or management.

In addition to the core academic studies obtained from a degree in project management, students and graduates may use the education as the foundation to sit for certifications necessary in the industry. The Project Management Institute (PMI) publishes a ‘Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge’ (PMBOK Guide), which describes project management practices that are common to ""most projects, most of the time."" The Project Management Institute also offers multiple certifications that can be used for career advancement. The PMI offers the following certifications:

  • Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)
  • Project Management Professional (PMP)
  • Program Management Professional (PgMP)
  • PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI - ACP)
  • PMI Risk Management Professional (PMI - RMP)
  • PMI Scheduling Professional (PMI - SP)
