Graduate Certificate in Project Management FAQs
What industries use project managers?
Project managers can be found across nearly every industry, though their exact title may differ from company to company. Project managers use a combination of business skills and industry knowledge to ensure that productivity goals are being met. Because most every industry and company has projects they want to accomplish, project managers can be found in many industries.
Is a graduate certificate different from a master's degree?
A graduate certificate is different from a master's degree. A graduate certificate in project management sits between a bachelor's degree and a master's degree or an MBA in project management. Project management certificates do not take as long to earn as a master's degree, on average, which makes them a great choice for people who wish to add an extra credential to their resume but do not have time to enroll in a full degree program that requires additional project management courses.
At DeVry, several of our graduate certificates are stackable2, meaning that you can earn a graduate-level credential with less time and tuition—and qualifying credits may apply directly to one of our master’s degrees.1
