Project Management Certificate

The Project Management Certificate is designed to make students exceptional project managers by giving students the skills and abilities to:

  • Define, organize and manage the various components of a large project
  • Develop, analyze and monitor project budgets to give accurate financial projections and reports
  • Monitor project progress to avoid delays and missed deadlines
  • Analyze and manage project risk

The ability to define large projects correctly and then bring them to completion on time and within budget is a critical professional skill. Engineering, Business, IT and Environmental projects have critical needs in these areas, but almost any organization has projects that involve the stewardship of time and money to bring about change. Carroll has created a program that delivers industry standard content derived from the Project Management Institute’s Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) and meets the educational needs defined by the State of Montana’s Project Management Office. The goal is to offer professionals and students in the Helena and surrounding communities the chance to develop these skills and competencies in a high quality, real project based, comprehensive, program that can also be part of higher education degree.

The Project Management Certificate is designed, similar to a minor, to allow students from any background to add it to their degree and skill set. Unlike a minor, it does not require the students to get a major or degree to accompany it.
