Humber PMI Community Launch

PMI launch

The Humber PMI-Toronto Student Community was officially launched during an event held on Thursday, March 1, 2018. It was a milestone for the Project Management Graduate Certificate Program, the School of Applied Technology and Humber College.

Your Career

PMI’s PM NETWORK magazine has reported that the sectors to watch for project management hiring opportunities are technology, global infrastructure, energy, financial services and health care. Then, the Project Management Institute (PMI) stated that project based-industries could be at risk due to the lack of skilled project managers, based on a study conducted by The Anderson Economic Group (AEG). Between the years 2010 and 2020, an estimated 15.7 million new project management jobs will be added globally, reaching an economic impact of over $18 trillion across seven project-intensive industries.

In 2017, a significant talent gap was revealed that further presents opportunities for employment and career advancement in this area.  In a PMI commissioned study entitled, Project Management Job Growth and Talent Gap 2017-2027, AEG looked at 11 countries and found that by 2027, the project management labour force in key sectors was expected to grow by 33% (22 million new jobs) and consequently, employers would need some 88 million employees in project management oriented roles. 

Whatever sector you want to work in, the demand for leaders and team members with project management skills and competencies is growing. Our program has been designed to help everyone, from the new graduate to the experienced professional, looking to acquire this highly regarded and sought-after skill set.
