Master of Science in Project Management

The acclaimed Master of Science in Project Management degree program (MSPM) at Boston University’s Metropolitan College serves as a comprehensive introduction to the world of project management. While learning the tools and techniques to monitor and track project costs and schedules, students develop the ability to manage project resources and communications, and complete a successful project. Boston University’s Project Management master’s program covers both introductory and advanced knowledge, and will provide the skills to manage a complex project within a specific time-frame and budget.

Students with a broad range of professional responsibilities will benefit from this detailed examination of a project’s conception, planning, budgeting, resource allocation, and implementation. BU’s graduate degree program in Project Management is beneficial to those working on complex projects for global companies; those designing IT infrastructures; those in the biotechnology industry; and those completing consulting contracts.

With appropriate advanced planning, you can use degree electives from the Master of Science in Project Management to satisfy up to two required courses in an Administrative Sciences graduate certificate program—leaving only two additional courses to be completed in order to receive a graduate-level certificate.

Students who complete the master’s degree in Project Management will be able to demonstrate:

  • Proficiency in developing a project management life cycle for projects relevant to their professional domain.
  • Advanced knowledge of the project management process groups: Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring and Controlling, and Closing.
  • Proficiency in project management techniques, especially project planning; project communications; cost and schedule estimation and control; contracting; and risk and quality analyses.
  • Knowledge of advanced tools for project cost estimation and control, schedule development and tracking, and templates for project management and communication.
