The Enterprise Project Management program at Stevens prepares students to manage and lead enterprise-level projects. The program supplements the basic project management framework with education in advanced project management techniques and leadership skills.
Students interested in project management have several options at Stevens:
- Graduate certificate in Project Management.
- Master of Science degree in Enterprise Project Management.
- A concentration in Project Management that can be applied toward a Master of Science in other degree areas, including the Stevens MBA.
Unlike other universities that offer project management degrees, the Stevens program is based on the latest research in project management, innovation and leadership. These research-driven insights are incorporated directly into a curriculum that focuses on building strategic project management and leadership skills.
The Project Management program starts with the fundamentals outlined in the Project Management Body of Knowledge: scope, schedule and resource management, among other knowledge areas. The program then advances beyond the fundamentals to teach students to achieve business value, to help project managers become project leaders capable of maintaining the focus on creating business value.
A key differentiator in the Stevens program is our focus on leadership. A project manager’s work is accomplished by working with and through others. The key to success is the ability to influence constructively, build commitment and demonstrate support. In addition, today’s workplace is increasingly global and multifunctional. In order to embrace the benefits of diversity, one must understand individual differences and how to connect with others. That's a key focus of the Stevens program.
