In accordance with the requirements to take the Project Management Professional (PMP) exam, the Rutgers-Camden School of Business has developed a Certification in Project Management program as part of our Executive Education curriculum. It is perfect for professionals who are new to project management field or are looking to transition into a project management career. The program will also give you the required educational units necessary to site for the PMP® exam.
What Does the Certification in Project Management Program Consist of?
The Certification in Project Management Program was designed to prepare project managers for today’s long-term projects, as well as for professionals who seek PMP® certification. It’s for this reason why the program was designed by PMP® subject experts with real-life industry experience. The program aligns with the subjects addressed in The Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Fifth Edition.
The curriculum for this course includes coursework in project management theories, controlling costs, defining project requirements, managing project human resources, identifying project risks, and more. Project managers with little formal project management education can learn the skills, techniques, and theories necessary to be successful in today’s business climate.
The program is self-paced, meaning those enrolled can complete it on their time, and allows professionals to earn this certificate, and begin preparations to earn their project management certification, online. In total, the program will take about 100 e-learning hours to complete, and every student will have one-on-one meetings with a dedicated advisor.
How Changes in the PMP Exam Make Finding a Preparation Program Essential
Starting next year, the PMP® exam will have a few modifications to address changing external and internal factors that will affect the field of project managers. The Project Management Institute has issued information on its website to highlight some of those changes. Twenty-five percent of the exam will focus on new content and some tasks will be weighted differently to reflect changes in the project manager position.
