The Project Management Certificate Program at SDSU World 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.

The Professional Certificate in Project Management at SDSU World 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.
