Good project managers efficiently bring together the moving parts of a project—but how do you reach beyond the status quo? How do you move from good to great and consistently innovate and execute strategic processes that set your leadership and creative thinking apart?

In this Masters Certificate program, you’ll learn from experts in project management (PM) and distinguish yourself with competitive training. Round out your PM toolbox with detailed lessons on ‘Principles of Behaviour’ and ‘Performance Domains’ from the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBoK®). Learn the latest vocabulary and join industry conversations with up-to-date content on Agile and Scrum.

Participants preparing for the PMP® (Project Management Professionals) designation exam will gain mastery of related topics and fulfill their required contact hours (please refer to the Project Management Institute (PMI) for application requirements).
