Project Management Certificate


In eCornell Certificate Programs  

Earn 50 project management education hours towards your PMP (Project Management Professional) certification and exam when you complete Cornell’s Project Management certificate program.

Most projects, even at successful companies, tend to go over budget and take longer than projected—even with formal training, specialized tools and automated software. The courses in this project management certificate program teach proven strategies and practical, hands-on tools to drive successful project outcomes. You’ll learn how to scope projects effectively, set key milestones, improve time budgeting and resource allocation, and get the project done on time and within budget. Processes covered within the project management certificate program include agile methodologies and earned value management (EVM).

The concepts, tools, and language of project management in this program can be applied to any size or type of project. Familiarity with the language of project management is helpful, but not required.

In addition to the Project Management curriculum, you have the option to join an intensive 5-week PMP study group, which includes live online sessions with other students and your instructor, guided practice PMP exams, and preparation strategies designed to help you prepare for the PMP exam. Accompanying study books required.

For the best experience in this program it is strongly recommended to take these courses in the order that they appear.
