The Project Management program is on the cutting edge of a changing business environment in which most new and innovative work is in the form of projects delivered on time and on budget.
If you have previously completed a post-secondary education and wish to increase your employability; are an experienced project manager seeking to bring a new dimension of leadership to your work environment; or are a leader who wants to manage innovation in a structured manner, you will find this offering beneficial.
The School of Business program, which is fully licensed by the Project Management Institute as a Registered Education Provider, follows the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) methodology. As such, it provides solid, fundamental hands-on training to equip specialists in any discipline with the skills to manage projects in a timely and cost-effective manner.
The basic knowledge you will acquire from PMBOK will be enhanced through a curriculum that includes hands-on integration of technology tools such as Microsoft Project and leading-edge industry case studies with a focus on organizational leadership.
To round out training, the Project Management program will feature an optional full-time, 12-week experiential learning opportunity (field placement) with a participating organization that will allow you to gain valuable project management experience. During this time, 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 Project Management Institute (PMI) designation.
The program will prepare you to confidently write the Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification Exam from the PMI by meeting the eligibility criteria. Registration in this will incur costs in addition to tuition.
Please note: Program 2525 is offered at the Pickering Learning Site. If you wish to take this program at Progress Campus, please see program 2528.
