Courses in Project Management

A course involves the study of a particular topic within a wider subject area. A course in project management is for the person who seeks to develop his or her skills in goal-setting and completion in a professional setting.

One may ask, what is a Course in Project Management? Courses in this subject vary in length from a few weeks to the span of a typical university semester. They are offered through distance learning programs as well as on physical campuses. Most courses are offered with a similar goal in mind, and that is to help students learn how to set and meet goals to successfully complete a project in a professional environment. While large corporations, engineering firms and big business in general employ project managers as a matter of course, the knowledge may be applied in any environment and toward any task with a timeline and goals. Students learn to work with resources both material and human to bring projects to fruition.

A project management course helps explain how successful projects are organized and administered. Students learn about project life cycles. They are given tools and techniques for structured planning, how to manage change and risks, and how to manage stakeholder expectations. Students also learn how to juggle multiple projects at once. These skills benefit any professional task.

Costs for courses are different from school to school. For accurate information regarding fee schedules, contact individual admission offices directly.

Project managers are vital across many industries. There is need for managers on legal teams, in human resource departments to develop training events and in supply chain businesses. For construction companies and engineering firms, the project manager is a critical position. Municipal governments offer many career opportunities for people with project organization skills. The entertainment industry is another source of employment. A project manager is important to bring creative projects like films to light.

Why study Specialization in Project Management in the EIA

The profile of the candidate of the Project Management Specialization contemplates the acceptance of professionals from different academic disciplines, which favors the multidisciplinary analysis and the integral conception of the projects, without losing each participant his professional identity or pretending to invade fields external to his profession.

The elements that distinguish the Specialization in Project Management are: the approach towards the theory of restrictions, the systemic and strategic thinking and the emphasis on the methodology of the Project Management Institute (PMI).

The Theory of Constraints sees the value chain as a whole, whose parts interact systemically and not on their isolated components. In this measure, the projects are considered in a holistic manner, seeking to strategically strengthen the weakest link in the chain in order to increase the productivity of the system. Its solution with critical chain and its vision in multiprojects provide it with a high differentiating value.... [-]

Accelerate and improve team decisions by learning Agile’s facilitating leadership principles to unleash team productivity, motivation, and problem-solving. About this course

Agile can often challenge project managers in the realm of leadership. Old styles of command-control are now a thing of the past, except for the most conservative organizations. But Agile takes self-empowerment to new levels and challenges traditional beliefs in what leadership means.

In this course, you will learn how this new style of leadership redefines and redistributes team roles by:

Motivating through empowerment to gain better decisions. Facilitating the creativity and inclusivity of a high-functioning team. Identifying and managing decision-making biases. Negotiating conflicts across individuals, teams, and organizations. Ensuring success through delegation and powerful constraint-based metrics. ... [-]
