Project management is a must-have skill for any distribution professional looking to move up. Villanova University's online project management certificate program will help managers from all parts of the organization learn to manage the scope, time, and cost of their projects. It will also cover issues related to budgeting, risk and contingency, resource allocation, quality control, people management, and communications.
Villanova's eight-week Applied Project Management Program consists of three courses: "Essentials of Project Management,"which is required, and a choice of two electives. For their electives, students can choose from "Mastering Project Management," "Project Management Professional Exam Prep," "Project Management Capstone," "Advanced Strategic Project Management," "Maximizing Team Effectiveness," and "Finance and Accounting for the Nonfinancial Manager." The exam prep class helps students prepare for the Project Management Institute's Project Management Professional certification exam or Certified Associate in Project Management certification exam.
Classes are led by a professor via online streaming video, and participants use two-way voice over IP, instant messaging, chat rooms, and message boards to communicate with teachers and classmates. For more information, visit www.villanovau.com.
