The Bachelor of Business Administration with a specialization in Project Management is designed to provide students with the process planning knowledge and communication skills required for a successful career in the project management field.
Students will gain specialized knowledge in project management fundamentals and terminology.
Students will also compare various project life cycles to Agile project management and thoroughly work through all elements of the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide).
Students will take part in a rigorous examination of all planning processes and process interactions during the project life cycle. Students will collaborate with others to appraise the content and format of project management plans for small, medium and large projects. They will clarify the scope, schedule, cost and resources necessary for a sample project. Students will also create plans for the management of risk, quality, human resources, communications and procurement for one or more sample projects.
The specialization culminates in a Capstone course, where students will work in teams to develop a project management plan, and prepare for project execution, monitoring, control and closedown.
Courses throughout this specialization are offered fully online, and are also available through a flexible on-campus delivery option in Vancouver, British Columbia. Students are not required to choose one or the other but, instead, can work with a Program Advisor to design a program of study that optimizes their learning.
