Project Management Program Prepares Professionals for Certification

November 28, 2017 //

The Fox School’s Department of Marketing and Supply Chain Management (MSCM) not only offers high-quality academic programs at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral level, but also offers non-credit opportunities for industry professionals. MSCM collaborates with the Project Management Institute (PMI), Delaware Valley Chapter (PMI-DVC) to expand Fox’s opportunities for professionals by offering the Project Management Professional (PMP) Prep Program.

PMP Prep is a two-course sequence of foundations and exam preparation courses dedicated to preparing project management professionals to study and sit for the Project Management Professional (PMP) ® certification.

MSCM offers this program during the fall and spring semesters at the Temple University Center City campus in small class settings during the evenings to accommodate demands of working professionals. All instructors are members of PMI-DVC and certified PMPs with extensive real-world project management experience. We are offering this non-credit executive education program for the third year, and it continues to enroll an increasing number of prospective PMP candidates each semester.

Speaking on the impact of a PMP certification, Michael Chapman, director of training for PMI-Delaware Valley Chapter, said, “I have always been impressed with the universal recognition of the Project Management Professional (PMP) ® certification and the respect that it is afforded worldwide. Individuals who pursue the PMP certification demonstrate their commitment to professionalism and their dedication to their careers.”

Those interested in learning more about this program can contact Dr. Mark Gershon, professor of operations management in MSCM, at mgershon@temple.edu.
