Project Management


Professional Development at Creighton University

If your organization is like most, projects have become an important vehicle for achieving company goals and more and more employees are being asked to lead or implement them. Effective project management requires an understanding of project-specific tools and techniques as well as leadership skills, business acumen, problem-solving abilities and critical thinking. Hiring for these skills and abilities is an option, but many organizations are opting to train high-potential employees who are already part of the company.

Our courses teach participants how to lead cross-functional teams and deliver exceptional outcomes. We have classes that cover the fundamentals of project management, and certification exam prep courses as well. Both new and experienced professionals can explore how to apply business acumen and project management tools and techniques to meet organizational strategic goals.

The courses offered through Creighton align with the industry-leading standard in project management, the Project Management Institute’s Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). Classes are led by credentialed instructors who are actively engaged in the project management community and practitioners of the craft.
