Specialization in Project Management

The Bachelor of Business Administration in Project Management has been developed as a multi-disciplinary study of business administration. It prepares students to meet the challenges of the contemporary workplace by facilitating their understanding of a balanced and informed approach to decision making. This baccalaureate degree is practically oriented with an industry-focused array of core business courses.

The program content has been developed and structured to align with the requirements established by the Project Management Institute (PMI). The delivery mode has been designed to encourage students to work on examples and cases relevant to the work place and job market. 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 lifecycle. Students will collaborate 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 on-campus in Toronto, Ontario, and Vancouver, British Columbia. Students are not required to choose one mode of delivery over the other, but may work with a Program Advisor to design a plan of study to fit a preferred learning style.

Delivery Modes

Yorkville University strives to accommodate all types of learners, and to meet the needs of its growing student network. Offering both online and on-campus delivery is intended to enhance the learning experience, and to expand educational access for all current and potential students, particularly those who want or need to work fulltime or part-time while they study.

Online

Yorkville University’s Bachelor of Business Administration takes a flexible approach to online education, using curriculum designed to optimize the learning experience.

In every course, faculty actively engage in discussions and provide individualized feedback, guidance, and support. Students follow a customized plan of study but, within each course, move through the material together participating in discussions, working on group assignments and team presentations, and completing independent assignments. All Yorkville University online BBA programs are offered without a required residency component.

On-campus

Yorkville University offers on-campus programs in Toronto, Ontario and Vancouver, British Columbia. Canadian students studying on-campus can enroll in some or all their courses online. This added flexibility allows students to select a delivery mode according to their preferences and what best suits their learning needs, at any given time.

Note: International students in Canada with a study permit will need to complete the majority of their courses on-campus.  These international students are expected to maintain a full time course load on-campus which is a minimum of three courses per term.
