Every type of industry employs project managers. Project management core competencies are transferable. Competencies include planning, organizing and managing resources so that the project may be successfully completed. Pierce courses use the internationally recognized project management best practices from the Project Management Institute (PMI) in the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide). The core project management courses (BUS 260 and BUS 261 ) are offered online.
The courses and certificates are designed to accommodate a variety of students who are interested in improving their employability and options for promotion by developing expertise in project management competencies.
- Not familiar with project management? You will receive a solid introduction to the profession.
- Already working on projects? You will be able to immediately apply globally recognized project management skills.
- Significant work experience? You will be able to refine your knowledge of Project Management standards and their application in the workplace.
- Students are expected to work and think like professional project managers and apply project management concepts in a class project simulation.
- Students should contact an academic advisor and talk to department faculty in your major about transfer options and certificates.
Professional/technical program competencies can be found on the Pierce College website at www.pierce.ctc.edu/pm-outcomes.
