To deal with rapid change, today’s successful project managers must employ traditional techniques while recognizing the business need for a project, sort through conflicting stakeholders demands, and manage communications with virtual and even global teams. FIU’s Comprehensive Project Management (PMP) Certificate Program empowers project managers with the tried-and-true tools and strategies for any size project—along with modern improvements derived from Agile.

Blending proven traditional and modern methods, the program imparts a combination of exciting new techniques and leadership concepts that have emerged from both industry and research. Whether you are an aspiring or a seasoned project manager, you will come away with tools needed to adapt and tailor your management approach to deliver successful projects that more challenging that those in the past.

Our live, instructor-led sessions are conveniently scheduled on a rolling basis for the ultimate flexibility and access to the invaluable, real-life perspectives of an outstanding faculty of PMP practitioners.
