Our Program: 

Humber’s Project Management graduate certificate program will prepare you to manage complex projects and programs.

When you successfully complete the program, you will have satisfied the education requirements necessary to apply to the Project Management Institute (PMI) for either the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) or the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification.

In just two semesters, you will learn the skills needed to move a project through conceptualization, initiation, planning, execution, control, and closing. The curriculum is designed in collaboration with industry and closely aligned to PMI’s Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). You will thoroughly explore project economics and financial analysis, operations management, procurement management, leadership skills, and professional best practices.

Your Career: 

In January 2013, Sarah Fister Gale reported in PMI’s PM NETWORK magazine that the sectors to watch for project management hiring opportunities were technology, global infrastructure, energy, financial services and health care.

In March 2013, the Project Management Institute (PMI) stated, based on a study conducted by The Anderson Economic Group, that project-based industries could be at risk due to the lack of skilled project managers. Between the years 2010 and 2020, an estimated 15.7 million new project management jobs will be added globally, reaching an economic impact of over $18 trillion, across seven project intensive industries.

Whatever sector you want to work in, the demand for leaders and team members with project management skills is growing. The Humber Project Management graduate certificate program has been designed to help anyone, from the new graduate to the experienced professional looking to change careers, acquire this highly regarded skill set.
