Master of Science (MS)

Program Length

36 Credit Hours


The Master of Science in Project Management is geared toward professionals engaged in managing the project life cycle in organizations in a wide array of industries and who are facing the challenges of introducing new products and services in rapidly changing environments.

These managers must draw upon a host of knowledge, skills, abilities, and other characteristics, as well as on sophisticated technological tools and techniques to meet project requirements. This thirty-six hour program therefore enables students to develop these competencies and prepares them to manage projects, both functionally and strategically.

The program, which is offered in traditional, online, and hybrid formats, is comprised of twelve required courses which address all aspects of the project life cycle from design to delivery to customer to cash collection. The courses focus on the project management process: initiation, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing, as well as on the functional knowledge required to manage the process, such as time, cost, quality, human resource, communications, and risk management. The students will be required to manage a major project in the final capstone course.
