Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Program Type

The Graduate Certificate in Project Leadership is intended to meet the challenges of professional workforce development, continuing education, and career planning. This program is for individuals with a Bachelor’s degree who wish to update their knowledge and skills on the leadership and management of projects, programs and portfolios within their respective industry or business line, expand their knowledge of professional project management, and improve their current abilities within a professional field.

This program will assist adult learners in obtaining Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification through the Project Management Institute (PMI). For those who presently have their PMP Certification, the Graduate Certificate in Project Leadership will afford the individual at least 225 Professional Development Units (PDU) toward their Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR).

Upon completion of the 18 graduate level credit hours in project management or related graduate courses for the Project Leadership program, the adult learner may consider continuing their graduate study at EMU to complete a Master of Science or Master of Arts degree. Potential graduate programs include Educational Leadership , Engineering Management , Quality Management , Public Administration , and Construction Management , to cite a few.
