UTSA offers new graduate certificate in project management

UTSA offers new graduate certificate in project management

(Sept. 10, 2019) -- The UTSA College of Business has launched a new graduate certificate in project management. Tailored to appeal to both novices as well as industry veterans, the 12-hour certificate program combines theory with applied practice to prepare students to manage projects in today’s technology-driven economy.

“As more enterprises use project-based methods to accomplish tasks, experienced project managers are in high demand,” said Kevin Grant, UTSA associate professor of technology management. “The need for these professionals is particularly acute in technology-based enterprises where the focus is on methods to move discoveries into the marketplace.”

Participants will begin the program by taking Essentials of Project and Program Management. Then, based on the individual’s background, students can choose three additional courses in areas such as Agile Project Management, Management of Technology, Management of Professional Personnel, Advanced Topics in Project Management, Project Management Certification and Emerging Technologies.

Project managers supervise all aspects of a project so that everything flows seamlessly to ensure that timeline, scope, risk and budget goals are met.

“Individuals new to this field will learn the tools and techniques that define core processes in project management,” said Grant. “More seasoned participants can augment their skills and utilize the coursework to prepare for project management certification. And, industry veterans can participate to earn professional development units.”  

Certificate courses are offered every semester.  Current graduate students can add the certificate program to their course of study. New students can enroll as a special graduate student to complete coursework to earn the certificate. For more information, contact Cara Jones at (210) 458-4641.
