Certificates are great résumé builders, provide increased marketability, verify competence to potential employers, and provide practical learning that can be translated directly into workplace application. Certificate programs also provide the knowledge you need in order to transform your career in less time than many traditional postgraduate and professional degree programs, and do not require any prerequisite work.

In the project management certificate program, students learn to effectively manage projects across a range of industries and disciplines. Through a series of courses, students will learn about the key principles and practices of project management, including project planning, scheduling, budgeting, risk management, and quality assurance. Students will also have the opportunity to apply these concepts to real-world projects, gaining hands-on experience and developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
