About This Program
Project Management has become essential in all areas of modern organizations. This course will develop the core technical and managerial skills needed to successfully perform all the steps required in managing a project.

Contrastingly, the second half of the course presents a practical approach where students apply the fundamental concepts to analyze case examples, delve deeper into project management issues, and gain hands-on experience with MS Projects.
