The Master of Science in Project Management (MSPM) program at Morgan State University was recently accredited by Project Management Institute’s (PMI) Global Accreditation Center for Project Management Education Programs, the world’s leading specialized accrediting body for project management and related degree programs.
This represents a critical milestone for Morgan’s MSPM program as it positions the interdisciplinary graduate program among the top tier of such programs regionally and is the only master’s level offering in the State of Maryland.
According to a report by the PMI, employment in positions requiring project-oriented skills is projected to grow tremendously in the coming years, with the addition of more than two million jobs in the United States and more than 11 million worldwide between 2017 and 2027. Morgan’s MSPM program places the Mid-Atlantic Region’s largest Historically Black Institution in a prime position to prepare diverse candidates for employment and innovation in this burgeoning field.
The interdisciplinary, 30-credit graduate program is offered in both face-to-face and online modalities. Each course has been designed in a collaborative effort of full-time faculty and project management practitioners. In their capstone course, Morgan students produce PM Magazine, a full-color publication that is distributed nationally through PMI. The program’s three elective courses may be taken from any discipline offered at Morgan, thus providing MSPM students with maximum flexibility in marrying project management principles with their industry or discipline of choice.
