M.S. in Project Management

In most organizations, project managers steer the ship. Project managers must create clear and attainable project objectives, build project requirements, and manage project cost, time, and scope. At the end of the day, project managers are the professionals responsible for the accomplishment of stated goals.

An M.S. in Project Management will deliver the skills and knowledge you need to lead complex projects in a variety of work settings. Curriculum begins by providing you with a deep and foundational understanding of business practices and philosophy. You’ll then cover the process of defining, implementing, and evaluating projects. In addition, the program highlights the specialized skills of quality control, risk management, and procurement and contracting. The curriculum also emphasizes communication techniques targeting both individuals and teams. This program also gives you the exciting option to incorporate international studies.

The M.S. in Project Management is also offered online as a separate program.


The Global Accreditation Center for Project Management (GAC) Board voted on August 21, 2007 to confer GAC Accreditation status upon the Master of Science in Project Management program offered by the Schools of Graduate and Professional Programs at Saint Mary's University of Minnesota.
