Certificate in Project Management (Online)

From the ancient Egyptians building pyramids to modern-day construction and manufacturing programs, it’s the project management process – and the project manager – that are the glue that holds the endeavor together from specification to final testing and deployment. Projects are how these organizations streamline to improve productivity. As mid-level management positions are reduced, project managers fill the void. Expertise in project management is a great way to advance a career.
