Introducing the Master of Project Management Degree at Bellevue University
The Master of Project Management (MPM) program is designed for professionals who wish to develop or expand their project management skills for interdisciplinary application. Combining theory with active learning, the program provides a strong foundation of the business, communication, and leadership skills needed to plan, execute, and manage projects and portfolios in today's competitive environments. The program is aligned with the Project Management Institute's globally-recognized standards and covers key areas contained in the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). Students will work with instructors who have achieved the Project Management Professional (PMP) designation and are actively working in the field.
While offered through the College of Information Technology, the Master of Project Management program is geared toward students both inside and outside the IT field.
"The goal is to push professionals into a deeper learning and application of project management regardless of industry," said Anissa Stein, Program Director for the Master of Project Management. "What makes both (the Graduate and Undergraduate) programs so enriching is the professional diversity that students bring to the classroom. I believe the ideal student would be one that has worked within a project team and/or has been a project leader for a number of years. The person will have worked through a project lifecycle and has the desire to be more organizationally impactful through project management."
Stein feels several classes help illustrate the uniqueness of Bellevue University's Master of Project Management offering, including Agile Project Management, Project Management in Global and Virtual Workplaces, Emerging Trends in Project Management, and the Practicum.
"I think these classes really reflect the forward thinking that exists in this discipline and BU's ability to move beyond a traditional project management curriculum," Stein said.
Agile Project Management introduces the subject and how agile methods differ from traditional project management, while the Global and Virtual Workplaces class covers challenges and issues as well as methods and tools associated with project management in a global or virtual environment. The Practicum will allow students to synthesize and evaluate processes for application within a project research study.
