MSIT - Project Management and Leadership Specialization

Capella University

With today's smaller budgets and tighter deadlines, IT project managers who can deliver the desired results, on time and on budget, are a valuable business resource, especially those with the advanced skills needed to oversee multiple projects spanning a range of geographic locations. This online project management master's specialization is mapped to "A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge" (PMBOK) from the Project Management Institute (PMI) and includes Capella’s award-winning course in Project Management for Technology Professionals. Because Capella is a Registered Education Provider of the Project Management Institute (PMI), you can earn your master's in project management from Capella and professional development units (PDUs) from PMI at the same time. People who choose this specialization are often pursuing management, director-level, or consulting positions overseeing and managing technology projects and teams.
