Project Management Certificate
Why Project Management?
Advance your Career. Build Your Resume. Give Your Team the Tools They Need.
Project management is one of the world's fastest growing and most in-demand disciplines. Skilled project managers are invaluable to their organizations, leading initiatives that improve productivity, financial performance, process improvements, customer/employee satisfaction and more.
According to the Project Management Institute® (PMI), on average, project managers make $108,000 a year, and PMP® credential holders earn 20% more than their non-certified peers.
With UofL's Project Management certificate program, you'll walk away with practical tools and skills that can be applied immediately in the workplace. And, because your certificate is not tied to any one specific industry or region, it moves with you - wherever your career may take you.
