Project Management - Practical Skills and Applications: Online Course

Enhance Your Project Planning Skills

The demand for project-oriented roles is increasing, and will likely reach 87.7 million by 2027 globally.1 This is because project management has become dominant in industries that were traditionally considered less project-focused.

This eight-week Project Management Program focuses on planning as a means of achieving successful projects. Rooted in practical skills and tools, you’ll learn about project management processes, critical planning techniques, and the most in-demand skills for project managers, such as change management and communication skills for stakeholder management. By combining standard industry knowledge and practical, result-driven approaches, you’ll gain an understanding of how to manage projects effectively, optimize project delivery, and address the value of critical paths.
