Project Management

Demand for project management expertise in organizations continues to grow, and the Meinders School of Business Project Management prep class is a great way to prepare you to earn the Project Management Professional PMP® designation.

In this highly interactive curriculum, the course will prepare the student for the PMP® exam by examining the special nature of projects, concepts, definitions and approaches. Value Colleges named Oklahoma City University to its "Top 50 Best Value Project Management Certificates" rankings.

The Project Management Professional (PMP) is a registered mark of the Project Management Institute, Inc.

This program takes an in-depth look at the PMI standard and the three domains of the Project Management: People, Process and Business Environment, and the related 35 tasks that characterize project management delivery (i.e., manage conflict, lead a team and execute project with the urgency required to deliver business value, manage communications, assess and manage risks, engage stakeholders, plan and manage budget and resources, etc.).

You learn from highly qualified instructors with extensive project management experience and work in teams with classmates to develop problem-solving techniques. Upon successful completion, students earn a certificate of completion from the Meinders School of Business and earn requisite contact hours required by PMI to take the exam.

This 40-hour course prepares you to take the Project Management Institute (PMI®) Project Management Professional (PMP®) or Certified Associate Project Manager (CAPM®) examination.

The course also covers ethics and professional responsibility.

The class was great! I recommend this class 100% to anyone preparing for the certification exam. These instructors have all been in the project management field for years and have a thorough understanding of the material and present it extremely well! I really don't think I would have passed the PMP® exam had I not taken this course. It was top notch!

Keri J. Garrett, PMP

I have passed the PMP® and firmly believe I would not have without this class. I also firmly believe that the one week boot camp, would have not done me as well. I think the pace is great and the classrooms are perfect to aid in digesting this material. I would definitely recommend (and have) this class to others!
