Project management is an applied management discipline employed within all industries today at all levels of the organization. The Project Management Institute (PMI) projects significant growth in this field through the year 2027. Additionally, it is observed that many project management career opportunities go unfilled due to an observed talent gap (Project Management Institute, 2017).

The Project Management certificate offered by United States University provides students exposure and essential training in project management essentials, project organizations, and project planning, execution and control. The project management course sequence within the program addresses elements of the Project Management Institute Talent Triangle® and includes the following courses: Project Management Essentials, Project Management Organizational Framework, Project Management Integration Framework, and Information Technology Project Management.

PMI, PMI Talent Triangle, and PMBOK are registered marks of Project Management Institute, Inc.
