Project Management Certificate Program Overview

OU-Tulsa’s Graduate Certificate in Project Management is designed to develop professionals who can manage projects effectively and efficiently to meet business goals. Courses use project-based learning and students are part of a diverse team of professionals that mirror how project teams the workplace.

Experiential and project-based learning techniques are used to facilitate application of course concepts to real organizational issues. Completion of the graduate certificate program reflects development of knowledge and skills in the initiation, planning, execution, and evaluation of organizational projects.

*Note: we are looking for diversity among applicants. We do not want applicants to all have the same undergraduate major, same work experience, same life experiences. We want diversity in our student population as students learn the most when they are on teams with people with different perspectives, experiences, and expertise.
