BILL JOHNSON: The Masters of Science in Project Management is a program that is accredited by the largest Project Management Association in the world — PMI.


YONAS TEKLEMARIAM: The St. Mary's University project management program is unique in a sense that it caters for a diversity of student base who come from all walks of life.


BILL JOHNSON: The program is really designed to help the student go to that next level within their work experience — from managing perhaps simple projects to very complex projects, using the various tools, techniques that are developed by PMI. What they're learning in the classroom, they really can apply in their work-a-day lives. Many of my students come back to me and say, you know what we talked about on Tuesday night? I applied it Thursday in my work place.


YONAS TEKLEMARIAM: The courses that I take in this program and the projects that we do at the end of each class helped me to polish my project management skills day by day, both in my personal and professional life.


BILL JOHNSON: We really do focus on developing leadership within our students. The ability to communicate and lead teams is probably one of the critical factors to a project manager's success. We really pride ourselves on being able to develop a community of learners within each of our classes.


YONAS TEKLEMARIAM: Most of the projects that you come across these days in that real world involve collaborative tasks from different locations. Therefore, learning how to manage projects in this manner will make you confident.


BILL JOHNSON: The level of support that our faculty provides students that is rather extraordinary.


YONAS TEKLEMARIAM: You will learn from faculty who have decades of real world experience in managing complex projects.


BILL JOHNSON: Instructors are available almost 24/7. They can set up video conferencing. They can set up a myriad of different ways to communicate with each other.


YONAS TEKLEMARIAM: The project management program will help me immensely in advancing my career. But again, it's not just in the future. It's helping me now.

Tuition is affordable and financial aid is also available.
