For those who want to oversee projects within departments or organizations, a degree in project management will teach leadership, motivational, and communications skills. Students will learn the basics of planning and implementing projects that are to be completed by small groups. Group projects can be very large in scope, so students will also learn how to manage their time, draft proposals, and create a budget for each phase. Many companies and other organizations rely on project managers to keep groups focused and productive through each of the project’s phases.
Courses students will need to complete in order to earn their degree include project management, technical writing, business communications, computer applications, and cost analysis. Those who lead projects will need to conduct research in order to develop projects, assemble a team, and oversee projects until they have gone through each phase and are completed.
