Towson University to offer project management certificate
TOWSON, Md. (Oct. 12, 2010)—The TU College of Business and Economics, in partnership with the American Society for the Advancement of Project Management, now offers the Student Certificate in Project Management (SCiPM) for business administration majors enrolled in the project management and business analysis (PMBA) track.
The SCiPM—pronounced "skip-em"—certifies that a student has completed a rigorous course of study in project management. It demonstrates to potential employers that the student is prepared for an active role in project management and is ready to gain advanced knowledge in the field.
“A TU business administration degree supplemented with a certificate awarded by a premier professional organization provides our students with a distinct edge,” says Sharma Pillutla, chair of the Department of e-Business and Technology Management. "This certificate provides students an industry endorsement that will help them in today’s hyper-competitive job environment.”
The Student Certificate in Project Management will be awarded to business administration students who are pursuing the PMBA track and successfully pass the certificate exam. The exam is usually administered at the end of each academic term—December for the fall and May for the spring. The student certificate is valid for three years from the time it is awarded.
