The Management and Technology department currently offers five certificates. Certificate programs consist of required foundational courses and electives.
- Agile Management: The Certificate in Agile Management covers topics such as leadership (coaching), ethics, team management, and systems development management. There is a growing demand across industries and business functions to quickly and efficiently deliver business solutions that align with rapidly changing environments. The agile methodology for systems development has evolved into the application of this “mindset” for project management, regardless of the industry. Upon completion of this certificate, students will be able to differentiate between management and leadership skills to successfully oversee a project from initial conception to a finished product or service while applying agile techniques.
- Data Visualization: The Certificate in Data Visualization helps individuals with no previous experience in data visualization to gain general knowledge in the field to apply to their current profession. It also helps individuals with data visualization experience to take their skill sets to the next level with courses such as the Interactive Data Visualization course. Upon completion of this certificate, students will be able to apply the core principles of data visualization and graphic design principles to transform data into information and to create compelling and engaging visualization using data visualization tools.
- Project Management Fundamental Tools and Techniques: The Certificate in Project Management Fundamental Tools and Techniques is designed to provide students with the foundational knowledge needed to effectively manage projects. Organizations undertake projects to achieve strategic objectives, to meet the needs of their customers, and to keep their operations functioning smoothly. Successful project execution requires a mix of technical competencies and soft skills. Aligned with the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK), the curriculum provides students with opportunities to design, develop, and deliver project management artifacts and to prepare for managing real-world initiatives. In addition, the certificate satisfies the necessary educational requirements for completion of the PMI Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) exam.
