Certificate Track: Project Management

About This Course
Well-run projects depend entirely on the foundation built during the initial project planning stages, careful and precise project organization, and excellent teamwork.

This foundational course provides an overview of project management, a detailed look at the characteristics of successful projects, and a hands-on team simulation of the project planning and project management process. Students will review current best practices as defined by the Project Management Institute (PMI) in their Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®), and learn how to plan and execute projects effectively.
