MBA Concentration in Project Management

With the increasing demand to combine different strategies and tools for implementing projects, there is great need for skilled project managers to improve the performance of their business or organization. A Project Management concentration is a viable and sought after program for both business and engineering graduate students. The concentration is multidisciplinary, creating a cross-functional learning environment similar to the business settings where projects are managed. Course content will be aligned with the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) PMP (Project Management Professional) and CAPM (Certified Associate in Project Management) certifications.  Students completing the concentration will qualify to take either the PMP or CAPM exam, depending on their prior project work experience, and will be encouraged to do so. Having PMI certification will signify that students have achieved a recognized standard of global best practices.

Students enrolled in the Barney School MBA program can earn a Project Management concentration by completing four graduate level project management courses (12 credit hours).  The four courses will count toward the four elective course MBA requirement.  Students will complete three required concentration courses, and any one of two other elective concentration courses as follows:
