Add a career-focused Project Management degree graduates can take into any industry

According to the Project Management Institute (PMI), employers will need to fill an average of 2.3 million new project-oriented roles each year through 2030, and yet project management education is rare at the undergraduate level.

Rize’s Project Management program is designed in collaboration with academic experts from Duke University, Stanford University, and Georgetown University as well as industry experts from several Fortune 500 companies to fully equip students with the skills vital to project management to supplement their liberal arts education. Students who complete this program will be eligible to sit for the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) exam and receive this globally recognized certification from the PMI.

PMM I - Introduction to Project Management

According to a recent study of human resource managers, effective project management is one of the most coveted skills for new hires in the modern economy. This course will introduce you to the power of effective project management through two primary frameworks: waterfall and agile. You will also learn vital project-management concepts that can be applied to a wide range of industries and occupations. This online class has optional live sessions.

PMM II - Project Planning

Any successful project starts with a plan. This course provides students with a deep understanding of project planning. Projects are a series of tradeoffs between scope, cost, and time, so you’ll need to learn how to balance them in order to create a plan which is realistic and achievable. You will also learn how to leverage resources, and how to manage risk, quality, and stakeholder expectations to ensure project success. This online class has optional live sessions.

PMM III - Project Execution, Monitoring & Control, Implementation & Closure

In the modern work environment, the project lifecycle always involves unforeseen challenges that require the project manager to make adjustments. Successful project implementation and closure requires conviction and trust in processes and personnel. Both are vital parts of a project’s success and indicate how future projects will be managed. This course covers project execution, monitoring / control, implementation / handover, DevOps, and project closure and prepares students for Project Management Practicum and Internship. This online course has optional live sessions.

PMM IV - Advanced Project Management - Practicum

This course is intended as a culmination of a student’s work in the Project Management Major. Students will work in groups to manage a simulated project from scope to completion - encountering - and overcoming - challenges and complications along the way. This course will also provide students with an overview of the product life-cycle, governance, and other topics to help contextualize project work. The online course has optional live sessions.
