Project Management: What's Next?


Did you know that 1/5 of the world’s GDP (Gross Domestic Product, US $12 trillion) will be spent on projects this year? Or that the demand for project professionals is expected to increase by 1.2 million jobs per year for the next decade?  In light of those numbers from the Project Management Institute (PMI®), it’s no wonder project management has emerged as one of today’s top fields.


As the economy rebuilds, working efficiently while saving costs has become a major focus for companies and government agencies alike. According to the PMI®, “Organizations that range from global businesses to governments and NGOs [non-government organizations] have identified project management and skilled project managers as the key to their success.”


Being a certified project manager (CAPM® or PMP®) is a good start to moving up the corporate ladder. However, if you want to have your résumé standout from your competitors’, there is something else you can do – earn your MBA with a specialization in Project Management.


Today, many colleges and universities are catering to the project management field with online MBAs specializing in project management. When it comes to earning your MBA, you should consider the institution you’d be earning the degree from just as much as the program itself. Some important factors to look at when choosing your institute of higher learning are: history, reputation and accreditation.
