Project Management

Make Innovation Thrive

Project management is a rapidly growing profession that responds to the needs of diverse industries. Project management knowledge and skills are increasingly valuable beyond IT, construction, or engineering fields. With the inclusion of Agile-based strategic and business knowledge environments, project management has become a multi-faceted skill set. The Project Management Institute (PMI) has reported that through 2020, 1.57 million jobs will be created each year that increases the demand for project qualified practitioners. With fundamental knowledge and a Certified Associate of Project Management (CAPM) credential you can be on the fast track to a world of increased opportunities.

The current OU Project Management Program consists of a three-day CAPM Exam Prep Course that gives you the knowledge cores to successfully prepare for the PMI CAPM exam. Upon completion, this Prep Course will issue you an OU College of Professional and Continuing Studies Certificate of Completion that verifies accomplishment of 24 hours of project management education. PMI requires 23 hours to qualify for the exam.
OU’s CAPM Exam Prep Course is taught by a practicing and credentialed Project Management Professional (PMP) with expert-level knowledge of PMI’s knowledge cores and has professional experience in designing and implementing projects across various industries.
