Graduate Certificate in Project Management
A versatile graduate certificate program designed for those students focused on increasing their PMI® project management knowledge or preparing to take the Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification exam.
Golden Gate University is a PMI member and a PMI® Registered Education Provider (REP). The Certificate in Project Management prepares you as a professional with highly desirable skills in the field of project management, by giving you a thorough grounding in multiple PM skills, including budgeting, conflict resolution, communication, project scope, developing and using resources, leadership and team building. These skills and many others provided by the program enable you to take leadership roles in local, outsourced and global projects. The project management certificate also provides an opportunity for those who wish to build on their MBA degree work by obtaining project management skills and apply project management skills in their present and future professional endeavors. Students will gain knowledge from faculty who are certificated by PMI, and who have significant real-world project management experience.
Please note that some courses taken as part of certificate programs will have prerequisites. These prerequisites must be satisfied (through transfer of equivalent coursework or through taking the courses at Golden Gate) before the certificate courses can be completed.
