Global business is powered by project management and there has never been a better time to be a professional project manager. Industries such as aerospace, construction, manufacturing and technology rely heavily on well-trained project managers to ensure that work gets done on time and on budget. The demand for these skills in many companies and organizations continues to grow at a rapid pace.

With an ever-increasing demand for professionals who can fulfill this crucial role, now is the perfect time to earn your project management certificate.

Take Control of your Career

Whether you want to accelerate your current career or start in a new field, learning proven tools and techniques from the experts can make you invaluable.

In this certificate program, we’ll equip you with the tools you need to guide sophisticated projects involving cross-functional teams. Our comprehensive curriculum aligns with the Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification exam. Master the major competencies that employers are looking for in today’s project managers.

Upon completing this OSU Project Management Certificate, you will gain:

  • Confidence and legitimacy when communicating with team members and stakeholders.

  • Templates to help you deliver projects on time and on budget.

  • Exact PM vocabulary and terminology so you can 'talk the talk' and objectively communicate your reasoning and assessment.

  • Tools to help you exceed even in the toughest of situations and environments.

  • Scripts and phrases to help you articulate unrealistic expectations - especially useful when in high pressure situations with key stakeholders.

  • Power to manage your environment (instead of your environment managing you).

  • Tips to help you spend your time productively instead of spinning your wheels.

  • A resume-worthy Oregon State University certificate and digital badge upon completion.

Project managers are integral in a variety of industries, including engineering, construction, architecture, and IT, where work needs to be completed on time and on budget.

According to Project Management Institute's most recent survey, the median project manager salary in the US was $108,200.

And, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics expects far higher than average job growth in the years ahead in positions that require project management skills.

With an ever-increasing demand for professionals who can fulfill this crucial role, now is the perfect time to earn your project management certificate.

What's the #1 reason projects and project managers fail? Answer - scope creep. Not delivering projects on-time and not meeting stakeholder expectations leads to stress, justification/excuses and (ultimately) disappointed/angry coworkers.

The one caveat being that each course is only offered once a year. So if you happen to go out of order, the missed class will be closed until the following year. If you are new to project management, it is recommended you take the courses sequentially. Please contact us with any questions.
