Master of Science in Project Management

The applicant to the Master of Science in Project Management degree program must have a bachelor's degree; however, the degree need not be in business administration. Students who are graduates from other fields, especially mathematics, science and engineering, are encouraged to apply. Students with an undergraduate business degree or courses may be able to waive up to 12 hours of the program prerequisites in the program based on an evaluation of their undergraduate academic transcripts. Prerequisite courses are required of a student whose undergraduate major is outside the business area or who has not previously completed the courses in these prerequisite areas. The exact number of needed prerequisite courses depends on courses completed during the student's undergraduate studies.

The GRE or GMAT may be required for admission evaluation purposes. General admission requirements and the process for applying are discussed in the Academic Overview of the university catalog. Individuals who do not meet the stated requirements for regular admission may petition to take graduate courses for credit as a continuing education applicant.

The goal of the Master of Science in Project Management is to prepare individuals for advanced leadership positions in the private, public and military sectors with specific skills and competencies in project management and identified concentration areas.
