Program OverviewPrinter Friendly
Centennial College's Project Management program will provide you with the solid fundamental knowledge to manage projects in a timely and cost-effective manner.
Fully licensed by the Project Management Institute as a Registered Education Provider, The Business School graduate certificate program is intended for applicants who previously completed a post-secondary education in any discipline and wish to increase their employability by working towards a globally-recognized certification in project management. It's also ideal for experienced project managers seeking to bring a new dimension of leadership to their work.
The Project Management courses in this college business program will follow A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, (PMBOK® Guide). Enhancing the use of this guide will be a curriculum that will include hands-on integration of technological tools such as Microsoft Project and leading-edge industry case studies with a focus on organizational leadership.
In the third semester, if you're an eligible candidate, you'll be able to participate in a full-time 14-week experiential learning opportunity (internship) with a participating organization that will allow you to gain valuable project management experience. During this time, you'll be required to participate in an online course and prepare assignments related to the experiential learning opportunity. You'll then be able to use the experience towards work requirements for the PMP® and CAPM® designations.
Please note: PMP, CAPM and PMBOK are registered marks of Project Management Institute, Inc.
