Project management professionals use communication, problem-solving and leadership skills to manage a project within the constraints of time, budget and predetermined performance specifications. The Master of Project Management (MPM) degree program helps students develop the ability to solve real-world management problems, and to exercise sound management judgment through practical application of project management concepts and skills.
MPzM students are taught specific concepts and skills required to successfully implement new, or enhance existing, commercial and/or technical programs. In addition, they learn to develop and apply new procedures to resolve existing problems.
The program also provides the requisite business management expertise needed in key areas such as accounting and finance, marketing and applied statistics. This combination of coursework, coupled with courses specifically focused on project management, ensures that students obtain the full complement of business skills required to successfully manage projects.
