Short-term Program in Project Management
Learn tried and tested project management techniques, develop leadership skills and learn how to successfully run end-to-end projects.
Why Project Management
Only 80% of projects end up being economically successful. The remaining 20% of projects usually cost more than estimated, run late, or fail to satisfy goals or meet objectives – mainly because of a poorly trained project manager. And today, the demand for a fully trained job-ready Project Management Professional is greater than ever before.
In This Course
The course covers the complete project life cycle including project initiation, planning, execution, monitoring & control, and closeout. Understand the role of a project manager in developing and managing project schedule, scope, cost, and quality across multiple projects.
