The PMGI Mastery in Applying Project Management certificate (MAPMc) programme is designed to build practical project management skills that equip you to manage projects of any size in any industry. It is packed with case studies with solutions and examples. Concepts are constantly reinforced through our ‘teaching by doing’ approach, facilitated by our trainers who are practicing project managers. Students in parallel then apply acquired skills to their real-world team projects. This course concentration is based on standards tested and approved by the Project Management Institute (PMI).
PROGRAMME METHODOLOGY & FORMAT
The course itself is designed to simulate real-world project environments with mandatory deadlines, critical paths and pressure points, underpinned by team dynamics, so as to foster mastery of the concepts taught. You will collaborate in teams working on project cases throughout the course. Our iLab provides an online document center where you can download free templates and learning resources; iLab also provides a forum for you to collaborate with your team and instructors online. Classes are taught in a relaxed round-table setting. A lap top is recommended.
