The acclaimed Master of Science in Project Management degree program at Boston University’s Metropolitan College (MET) 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, you will 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:

  • Construct a project plan and demonstrate knowledge of key subsidiary plans such as scope, schedule, cost, quality, communications, resources, and procurement; and demonstrate proficiency in developing an agile or plan-based project management life cycle for projects relevant to their professional domain.
  • Demonstrate advanced knowledge of project delivery principles—such as value, stewardship, team, stakeholders, risk management, communications, and leadership. Students will build and enhance team capability after assessing personal strengths and weaknesses and develop skills to manage a team and lead others.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of strategic planning, portfolio and program management, project analytics, and governance applicable to large projects and programs. Apply key drivers for project success—such as value delivery systems, change management, complexity management, investing in actively engaged sponsors, and social responsibility and ethics.
