Master of Business Administration / Project Management
Pennsylvania State University

Program Details

The online MBA in Project Management offered by Penn State is specifically designed with three components that maximize your learning experience.  ICE, which stands for Integration, Collaboration and Engagement, is at the center of your program.  PSU’s unique online MBA does not compartmentalize business disciplines.  On the contrary, it pulls all of the facets of business together for you to create solutions with others and to learn to think from a comprehensive viewpoint.  With this wide perspective, you can become a more successful business manager.  Your coursework within the Project Management concentration will likely include: 

  • Planning and resource management
  • Commercial law and project management
  • Cost and value management

Penn State’s MBA program is offered 100% online, but does include a 5-day residency orientation where you will meet members of your team – both faculty and your cohort.  There is also an optional Global Immersion component, where you can choose to study internationally and gain a broader perspective.


​Students are required to attend a five-day residency held at University Park, PA at the start of the program.
