Program and Portfolio Management, Graduate Certificate
The increasingly important role of program and portfolio managers is clear, as we see more companies orienting their work in a projectized fashion. Not only are companies seeking to projectize their workflow, but they are seeking to better align projects with the strategic direction of the company and industry. Program and portfolio managers need to be able to evidence the strategic value that projects are accomplishing and can continue to accomplish in their organizational context.
The need for organizations to coordinate their related projects into programs and to seek to understand the value of their work through the lens of a portfolio is recognized throughout all industry sectors. This has been made clear through the creation of advanced industry certifications, such as the Program Management Professional (PgMP®) and the Portfolio Management Professional (PfMP®) credential by the Project Management Institute.
Northeastern University's Graduate Certificate in Program and Portfolio Management is designed to prepare individuals with the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to effectively manage project-based programs and portfolios.
