Project Management Training

Prepare for the Project Management Professional Certification

Project management training at Florida Tech concentrates on developing strong leaders who understand the process of planning, organizing and overseeing projects no matter what industry they may choose for a career.

Project managers understand how to set and stick to a schedule, think analytically and meet their goals. Business training teaches them to understand their role alongside operations and logistics managers, while being focused on orchestrating all aspects of a project. Students with project management training from Florida Tech graduate with what they need to take a leadership role such as this, but also to satisfy the project management education requirement for the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification offered by the Project Management Institute (PMI).

This includes mastery of:

  • Introductory managerial statistics
  • Organizational behavior
  • Cost and economic analysis
  • Project tools and techniques
  • Strategic project management
  • Cases in applied project management
  • Project and program risk management
  • Practicum for project management

Additional Resources

As a national research institution, Florida Tech provides a variety of databases and catalogs associated with project management for students to attain a deeper understanding of the process and techniques used in the industry. This includes content from the PMI Community of Practice, Project Management Journal, PM Today and PMI Global Congress.
