The Project Management program is designed for professionals who want to excel in managing enterprise-level projects, programs, portfolios, and project management offices.
The Stevens PM program is career-oriented. The goal is to teach students the skills necessary to have a successful career.
- Project Management Skills
The PM program starts with the fundamentals outlined in the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK): scope, schedule, and resource management among other knowledge areas. Then the program goes beyond the fundamentals to teach students to achieve business value. Many project-related decisions have long-term consequences for the project’s stakeholders. Project managers must become project leaders in order to maintain the focus on creating business value.
- Leadership Skills
A key differentiator in the Stevens PM program is the focus on leadership. A project manager’s work is accomplished by working with and through others. The key to success is the ability to influence constructively, build commitment, and demonstrate support. In addition, today’s workplace is increasingly global and multifunctional. In order to embrace the benefits of diversity, one must understand individual differences and how to connect with others.
