Companies succeed or fail based on their ability to bring quality products and services to market in a timely manner. Without skilled project managers in place, companies are challenged to deliver projects on time, on budget, and according to specifications. From inception to completion, project managers are responsible for every step in the process: project definition, cost and risk estimation, schedule planning and monitoring, budget management, negotiation and conflict resolution, project leadership, and project presentation and evaluation.

The Master of Science in Project Management is designed to provide you the practical skills and theoretical concepts you need to lead complex projects. Featuring real-world case studies, this project management degree presents techniques and tools for managing long- and short-term projects, successfully and cost effectively. Augmenting the core project management courses are concentrations that provide you with content-specific expertise—enabling you to deepen your knowledge in your field of interest.

The programme received accreditation by the Project Management Institute's Global Accreditation Center (GAC),the world's leading association for project management professionals.

Career Outlook

As companies seek to improve productivity and effectiveness, project managers are in high demand—not only in the U.S., but also around the world. According to the Project Management Institute (PMI), a shortage of 6 million skilled project professionals is expected in the Persian Gulf and China Sea regions alone by the year 2013. Pay is also on the rise. According to the PMI Project Management Salary Survey, the average compensation for a U.S. project management practitioner is $101,505.
