Project Management

Department Website

The Master of Science in Project Management (MSPM) is designed to provide a rigorous background in contemporary theory and practice in project management, strengthened through the extensive application of tools, concepts and critical thinking in a case study environment. The MSPM provides students with perspectives and skills to prepare them for increasingly significant and complex project leadership roles within a broad range of public and private sector organizations: engineering, construction, oil and gas, natural resources, health care, information technology, communications, utilities, education, financial services, government, military, transportation, and others. The program requires 33 credit hours, or 11 courses for completion. Though ideally accomplished locally, the program is designed to support synchronous distance participation using video conferencing software such as Skype, Jabber or similar technology. No graduate placement exams are required for admission. Applicants should have two or more years of work experience in the field. Students may start the program in the Fall or Spring term.
