Experienced industry professionals came in to speak with the 2nd semester project management students through a series of roundtable rotations. Students were able to meet each project manager and ask them questions.

Your Career

In 2013, PMI’s PM NETWORK magazine reported that the sectors to watch for project management hiring opportunities were technology, global infrastructure, energy, financial services and health care.

Also, in 2013, the Project Management Institute (PMI) stated, based on a study conducted by The Anderson Economic Group, that project based industries could be at risk due to the lack of skilled project managers. 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.

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