California State University Northridge

California State University, Northridge demonstrates its strong commitment to the success of midcareer professionals by providing forward-looking and professionally focused degree and certificate programs, designed specifically for working adults seeking academic credentials of lasting value.

CSUN offers two online master's degrees of particular relevance for Project Management: Master of Knowledge Management (MKM) and Master of Science in Engineering Management (MEM). 

The MKM program prepares participants to manage the intellectual and knowledge-based assets of various organizations, including corporations, non-profits and government agencies. Delivered fully online, the program features work-friendly scheduling and takes two years to finish. This degree is unique in that it trains students to increase collaboration and knowledge-sharing among departments and cultivate innovation across organizational units.

The MEM prepares students to manage teams, projects and resources in technical and engineering settings. The curriculum has a focus on project management and courses that provide an overview of the engineering project management process—from the feasibility stage through close out. It also examines organizational and project structure, time-and-cost estimation, budgeting, work-plan development, and resources scheduling. Students learn to use appropriate project-management software counts for PDUs toward PMI tests.
