Throughout the course, you will be taught fundamental project management concepts designed to give you the knowledge, skills, tools and confidence to become a better project manager, leader and team member.
You will learn about the profession of project management, how to plan and balance project work, key considerations in executing, controlling, and closing a project, and the strategic value of projects.
Who Should Take this Course?
A true introduction to the practice, this is an ideal professional development opportunity for recent graduates interested in project management, career changers, or professionals who have some project management responsibilities but do not have a formal role as a project manager.
For more experienced project managers who want to enhance their knowledge and potentially prepare for the Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification Exam, Villanova University's College of Professional Studies also offers a PMP® Exam Preparation course.
