Our state-of-the art curriculum is built upon an integrated, scalable stage-gate approach to project management. This decision-driven framework requires the manager to address the changing nature of the relevant business questions as the project progresses through each phase. The curriculum goes well beyond the traditional professional exam preparation courses and delves into the leading-edge research of the faculty members, as well as best practices garnered from a variety of industries.
