What will I learn?

Humber’s Project Management graduate certificate program will prepare you to manage complex projects and programs.

In just two semesters, you will learn the skills needed to move a project through conceptualization, initiation, planning, execution, control and closing. The curriculum is designed in collaboration with industry and closely aligned to the Project Management Institute's Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). You will thoroughly explore project economics and financial analysis, operations management, procurement management, leadership skills and professional best practices.
