Projects are becoming more complex, project managers and teams are often being asked to do more with less, and executives and clients expect innovation, agility, and responsiveness. We offer project management training, leading to a Professional Certificate in Project Management, designed to give project managers (and any other professionals who work on projects) the tools they need to successfully manage any type of project – regardless of scope or industry.

The Project Management Certificate Program at SDSU Global Campus profoundly increased my ability as a project manager. The real-life approach to project management offered by experienced project management instructors has fundamentally increased the contributions I make to my employer.
— Ignacio Sedeno, City of San Diego
The Professional Certificate in Project Management at SDSU Global Campus helped prepare me to take the PMP® exam. The one-night-a-week class format fit my busy schedule, and the instructors were first rate. I would recommend this program to anyone interested in becoming a project manager, and also to existing project managers to enhance their skills.

I'm in the information technology business – that's been my career for the last 28 years. I don't necessarily want to change careers, I'm trying to enhance my career path within that field. Rather than a wholesale switch, I've found that a lot of the jobs I'm been applying for prefer you have project management certification. I've managed a lot of projects informally, so this will enhance my resume to say I have that skill and have been through the certification process.
