Project Management Certificate

Lehigh University's Graduate Programs Office recognizes that while a project manager is indispensable, the role of the project manager is expanding due to the globalization of the economy and the current economic climate. We proudly offer the Project Management Certificate (PMC) program to enhance the learning curve of the project manager.  The PMC program also serves as an excellent prep course before taking the Project Management Professional (PMP®) Certification.

As a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.), Lehigh University has been approved by PMI to issue Professional Development Units (PDUs) for its PM certificate courses.

Here is what you will find when you enroll in Lehigh University’s PMC program:
  • Eight (8) courses ranging from management skills to process skills
  • Combination of both online and on-campus course offerings. Five (5) of the eight (8) courses are offered online. Three (3) of the eight (8) courses are required to be taken on-campus.
  • Only taught by Industry Experts
  • 11 months to complete the entire program
  • Cohort-based: students move through the entirety of the program as one unit in order to build relationships with colleagues and to provide additional support to fellow team members
  • Program begins two (2) times per year: a cohort begins in the fall and spring semester
What makes our PMC program different from the rest?

Our students will tell you:

“The Lehigh University (PMC) program format offered me the confidence in leadership and ethics that are not only prescribed by the Project Management  Institute, but also serve as valued behavior for interfacing with demanding internal and external customers.”

“I elected to pursue continuing education from Lehigh University based on the institute’s excellent reputation, as well as endorsement from the Project Management Institute.”

"During my first class I spent a significant amount of time in China, but with the Blackboard tools, it was no issue. It is amazing that a program can be administered, literally to the other side of the planet, and still be so effective. It was the best of both worlds; taking a very interesting assignment and getting the formal education too.”
