York University's Schulich School of Business and University of Saskatchewan's Edwards School of Business come together to help you study practical and effective management techniques for the successful execution of any project in THE PROJECT MANAGEMENT COURSE.

Introduction & Background:

This course teaches you how to plan and execute organizational projects on time and on budget...

 A project is any unique undertaking which requires a special organization and has stated objectives in terms of scope, time and cost. The Project Management Course takes a comprehensive view of “the total project,” from the planning and organizational stages to the actual implementation stage with special emphasis placed on control and continuous improvement.

Course coverage will include project management systems and will also explore the often neglected human side of Project Management and employee motivation. This is an ideal overview for anyone directly or indirectly involved in project development.

"The Project Management Course at the Edwards School of Business provided a very thorough overview of the project management cycle. An excellent course both for an introduction to project management or as a refresher. The course was catered to individuals from diverse industries and drew on a variety of backgrounds and experiences which provided a comprehensive understanding of the breadth of project management applications in the modern workplace." - Yarnel Bender, National Research Council of Canada
