Learn to manage technical projects in one of the nation’s fastest-growing tech hubs with the opportunity to complete a co-op at some of the industry’s most influential and innovative leaders. With concentrations available in Agile Project Management, Leading and Managing Technical Projects, and Analytics, our MS in Project Management in Seattle prepares you with an education and real-world experience to take a leadership role in the Pacific Northwest’s most in-demand fields.

In today’s fast-paced business environment, companies succeed or fail based on their ability to bring quality products and services to market on time, on budget, and within specifications. Organizations in every industry recognize this, and a resulting shortage of talent has created expansive career opportunities for knowledgeable project managers.

The Master of Science in Project Management, accredited in 2009 by the Project Management Institute’s Global Accreditation Center, is designed to provide you with the theoretical concepts and practical skills you need to lead complex projects successfully—from initial planning, budgeting, and negotiations through project oversight and final evaluation. Complementing the degree curriculum are concentrations that enable you to expand your knowledge within your field of interest.

Program Objectives

  • Specialized Knowledge – Effectively lead and manage sometimes interrelated, complex projects in a mature manner while avoiding common project management pitfalls.

  • Civic Learning – Understand the need for ethics and social responsibility in the practice of project management as outlined in the PMI Code of Ethics.
  • Intellectual Skills – Develop the critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills necessary to lead projects in a complex and dynamic project environment.
