The Project Management sector is projected to grow by 6 millions jobs in the United States by 2020 and by an even greater number internationally. The critical skills and perspectives required by today’s project managers continue to evolve and expand as projects become increasingly complex and time more constrained.
The Project Management specialization at BC’s Woods College is designed to provide the adaptive management and problem-solving skills needed to succeed in this exciting field. Students will learn how to effectively plan projects using agile approaches to achieve high quality outcomes while managing and mitigating risk. The program will further develop team management skills in balancing the competing demands of a variety of work and thought styles of the various stakeholders involved in a project.

"Professor Musserian (Agile Methodologies) is absolutely amazing.
I look forward to class every week and have already applied different techniques that I have learned to my current projects.
She ties everything back to the "real world" so you can successfully apply what you have learned. It shows how much industry knowledge she really has and takes it to another level. I feel so privileged to be in her class. She makes you want to be the best project manager you can be! She is truly a professional in every way."
