Project management is an area of expertise that is valued in every sector, in every field, and in every industry. The ability to lead teams, plan complex projects, and see a project through to the end is useful whether in government, business, education, and any other field. And to make the most of their career potential, project managers are turning to online master’s degrees and certificate programs. As the editors state, "Because of the growing demand, colleges and universities have begun ramping up their curriculum with project management concentrations in the MBA and Master of Science, or with specialized Master of Project Management degrees." According to the editors, "An online master’s in project management also removes the need to attend a physical campus which opens up more educational opportunities. A student isn’t limited to the schools in their geographic area, nor do they have to relocate to attend the school of their choice."
Other professionals find a graduate certificate program in project management to be a valuable way to break into this growing field. A certificate is a quick start, and allows professionals to build on their current education and work experience. According to the editors, "you’re a working professional already in a project management position, or looking for a promotion to more responsibility that may include project management, a certificate program can offer just what you need." There are many different avenues to explore. As the editors explain, "Colleges and universities offer certificates through a variety of departments: business schools, Extended Study, Continuing Education, School of Professional Studies, or others," meaning that students can find a certificate program better suited to their particular field.
Value Colleges has a mission to help future students – whether they are working professionals, new graduates, minority and first-generation students, or others – to find residential and online degree programs that will help them make their goals a reality.
