Master of Project Management
Western Carolina University

Program Details

The online Master of Project Management offers graduate level training for mid-career project managers and other professionals who aspire to management or project management careers, as well as courses that provide students with the hours that count toward the requirements to sit for the Project Management Institute (PMI) Credentials or maintain a PMI credential.  Courses are taught by highly qualified and professionally experienced international faculty who provide a global focus and a broad project management perspective rather than an industry-specific perspective.  Students learn about project management discipline, project phases, project initiation, principles of negotiations, how to work with a team, how to estimate costs and allocate resources, about planning risk and quality control, leadership and management roles, and project team development.
