As project managers grow in their careers, the projects, programs and portfolios they manage become increasingly complex and cross-functional, demanding both deeper project management and broader business skills. It’s not enough to manage to scope, schedule and costs. Advanced project managers must manage a wider variety of stakeholders, ensure adoption of new products and services, and deliver a project’s intended value to an organization.

The Advanced Program in Project Management will help you stand out from other seasoned project managers and give you a competitive edge in a complex and crowded job market. To do so, you will take three courses related to advanced project management and leadership development, as well as fields such as Agile management, business analysis and business process management.

Take control of your projects and your career by communicating more effectively with stakeholders, advance your leadership skills and add business value to your projects. In just a few months, you can advance your career to the next level.
