You will be required to participate in an online course and prepare assignments related to the experiential learning opportunity. The experience can be used towards work requirements for the PMI® designation.

It is also ideal for experienced project managers seeking to bring a new dimension of leadership to their work environment and for leaders who want to manage innovation in a structured manner.

Industries often develop new and innovative opportunities through projects that are delivered on time and on budget. As a project manager, you will oversee a company’s projects from start to finish, ensuring each facet is executed with skill and efficiency.
