The concentration in Project Management is designed to prepare students for positions as IT Project Managers. Project Managers organize, schedule, and control IT projects, ensuring that they are implemented on-time, within budget, and that they meet stakeholder expectations and needs. Many PMs now manage virtual projects, where their project team is globally scattered and communications are primarily electronically facilitated. Some PMs lead an individual project, while others may be responsible for allocating scarce monetary and human resources across a variety of competing projects. Regardless, Project Managers must be skilled negotiators. In addition, all Project Managers require substantial organizational ability, sound judgment, and outstanding interpersonal skills.
