Project Management Advanced Certificate
In today's business-oriented society, project-based organizations have become the norm and project management has become much more than just a way of conducting business. New growth within these project-based organizations has changed the shape of project management to reveal what is becoming an exciting new career path for many individuals. Project Managers have quickly become a necessary asset for many businesses. The goal of a project manager is to successfully plan, organize and accomplish a specific project or one-time effort. Encountering the challenges of cultural and social differences, along with dealing with an assortment of industrial focuses, the Project Manager must be aware of his or her project goals on a daily and sometimes hourly basis. The basis for the completion of any great project is a well thought out project plan. RIT's new graduate certificate in Project Management will teach students how to plan, develop, and implement successful projects from initiation to termination.
