Program Description

The Project Management Certificate Program is now offered online. Students may elect to complete all certificate requirements online, or combine online and on-ground classes for maximum convenience and flexibility.

As more work becomes project-based, projects grow in complexity, and clients demand accountability and efficiency, professionals with project management skills have become highly sought after. Georgetown University offers a distinctive project management program that helps professionals become more accomplished, qualified, and effective managers in their fields. While the Project Management Certificate Program is built on the core processes defined in the Project Management Institute, A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge  (PMBOK® Guide) - Fifth Edition, Project Management Institute, Inc., 2013, the program strongly emphasizes the people skills and real-world practices required to successfully manage projects on time, on budget, and within scope.

Taught by practitioners and academics with extensive industry experience, participants gain analytical frameworks, strategic planning skills, and managerial insight to be more effective project leaders. The program also addresses the role of the project manager in cultivating and supporting innovation in project teams.

Georgetown University is a Global Registered Education Provider with the Project Management Institute (PMI)®.
