Since 2009, the University of New Haven has offered a comprehensive, 30-week, non-credit program teaching the fundamentals of project management concepts. Taught by certified PMP® instructors, the certificate program was designed for local professionals looking for an introduction to the field as well as seasoned project managers looking for a formal education in PM.
This eight month non-credit program consists of 5 six-week modules that need to be completed in order to receive the certificate.
Why Get a Project Management Certificate?
