Project management is a high level skill, and a demanding career choice. Project managers are key employees in every industry and all types of companies, all over the world. Project Management itself is rapidly becoming one of the most important processes within a company. The number of PMs has risen considerably as companies have begun to realize the valuable benefits they bring to the business.
What is the purpose of project management? Mainly it's organization, to provide a plan and the means on which to base management decisions throughout the life of a project. One reason for the recent growth of project management is the increased amount of complex and collateral projects that need a great deal of organization and planning to run efficiently.
Whether you intend to take classes on campus at MSUM or online, project management courses come in both formats.
Whether you are an incoming freshman or a transfer student, your career choices will expand and benefit from a Bachelors of Science in Project Management.
As an incoming freshman, you can earn the Bachelors of Science of Project Management, and take 30 credits of electives in areas where you are passionate. For example, if you are interested in marketing, take the project management degree and marketing classes and become a PM in marketing. You could even go as far as double majoring or getting a minor in your area of interest. The PM degree works well along, with a double major in all fields, particularly Business Administration, Computer Science, Health Care, Human Resources, marketing, management, and many many more.
If you are a transfer student, you can utilize your AA, AS, or AAS degree as your electives and all you need to do to finish the degree is complete the Liberal Studies (MNTC) and the 45 credits of core classes.
Whether you are a project manager by title, this degree equips you to earn more, get promoted faster, and become an invaluable asset to any organization or field.
