Project managers are in high demand across all industries. This one-year, three-semester Ontario College Graduate Certificate Program offered by The Business School will prepare you for a rewarding career in Project Management.
This program is intended for applicants who previously completed post-secondary education in any discipline and wish to increase their employability by working towards a globally recognized certification in project management. It is also ideal for experienced project managers seeking to bring a new dimension of leadership to their work.
The program courses follow A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). Enhancing the use of this guide, the program curriculum includes courses in organizational leadership, communications & employment preparedness, and understanding of business fundamentals. The curriculum includes leading-edge industry case studies and hands-on integration of technological tools such as the Microsoft Project.
The program will prepare you to select and justify projects, and initiate, plan, execute, monitor, control, and close projects. You will acquire the competencies to develop comprehensive project management plans that guide project teams through various project lifecycles (predictive, agile, and hybrid). In addition, you will acquire the competencies to lead diverse project teams and leverage content-specific knowledge from your previous studies and experiences.
During the second semester, you will participate in small teams in a capstone course (experiential learning opportunity) and collaborate with local organizations on various projects under faculty supervision.
In the third semester, if you are an eligible candidate, you will participate in a full-time 14-week placement (an additional experiential learning opportunity) with a participating organization that will allow you to gain valuable project management experience. You will then be able to use the experience toward work requirements for the PMP® and CAPM® designations.
