Students gain hands-on experience using various project management tools and techniques to successfully manage "real world" projects of varying sizes and degrees of complexity. Additionally, students apply emerging principles and methods in the modern project management field.

Career Path

The MSM program prepares graduates for a number of entry-, mid-, and high- level positions, as determined by a student's work experience.

Depending on a student's background and an employer's criteria, graduates of the Project Management specialization may qualify for these positions:

Some fields such as aerospace, construction, information technology, and government contracting are natural environments to practice project management principles. Driven by the need for innovation in rapidly changing environments, many other fields and industries are discovering that project-based organizations are more appropriate than their traditional modes of management. This growing perception applies from the lowest levels of management to the strategic boardroom.
