In a competitive marketplace, you want to do what it takes to get and stay relevant. Having experience in project management can propel your team and organization forward.
Project management is an applicable skill in a variety of fields — from health care to manufacturing to construction to public service. Even if a job title is not “project manager,” roles that help bring a project to life can benefit from project management training. Wherever there’s a project, excellence in management makes the process efficient and successful.
“Managing a project effectively allows applicable work to be completed on time, ensuring quality and maximizing efficiency,” said James Link, executive director of enrollment services for Cornerstone University’s Professional & Graduate Studies. “When we provide project management training, this allows aspiring leaders to gain the necessary skills to meet organizational goals. Transforming the world starts with investing in ourselves.”
Internationally recognized certification
Across industries, project management is an in-demand skill set for both employees and employers. As leaders pursue professional development, the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification is an internationally recognized certification that often comes to mind.
This industry-recognized credential carries valuable benefits that lead to professional and organizational success. With a versatile and dynamic set of project management skills and concepts, the experience gained through pursuing PMP certification can be immediately applied for transformative influence in your teams, departments and local community.
Be equipped with a practical, three-course training
At Cornerstone’s Professional & Graduate Studies, a focus on relevancy and forward-thinking to the future work environment equips students to thrive. Through a three-course training, students acquire both the classroom hours and content required to take the PMP exam.
The project management training incorporates practical project management knowledge taught by instructors who provide insight from their years of experience in the field. Through three online, six weeklong courses taken one at a time, students can continue moving forward in their professional development while simultaneously adding value to their teams and organization. More than a mere crash-course, the program provides an in-depth look at foundational tools and techniques of project management and leads to new opportunities.
Students like Eric Weller (B.S. ’20) find value in being able to advance their development through practical training. As he cultivates his forward-thinking vision for his career, he’s prepared to demonstrate his credentials through the PMP.
“Many of the job openings my employer posts require project management certification and skills,” Weller said. “As I navigate through this program, it’s clear that the curriculum will immediately provide real-world benefits.”
Weller began his project management training in January 2020 and plans to complete course work in May 2020.
