In today’s business-oriented society, project-based organizations and project management have become much more than just a way of conducting business. New growth within these organizations has changed the shape of project management to reveal what is becoming an exciting new career path for many individuals. Project managers have quickly become a necessary asset for many businesses.
The goal of a project manager is to successfully plan, organize, and accomplish a specific project or one-time effort. Encountering the challenges of cultural and social differences, along with an assortment of industrial focuses, the project manager must be aware of a project’s goals on a daily and, sometimes, hourly basis. Completion of any project is achieved via a well thought-out project plan. The advanced certificate in project management teaches students how to plan, develop, and implement successful projects from initiation to completion.
