“I was interested to learn how to use Microsoft Project and really understand project management. This program allowed me to further my education, earn a meaningful certificate, and meet other students with the same interests.”
“I felt that having three different instructors for this course led to a better understanding of each segment, and it was valuable to hear each of their perspectives. One instructor dealt with the software, one discussed and explained the overall concepts of project management with his own worldly working experiences – which were exciting to hear – and one taught us how to communicate well while working with or leading a project team. These perspectives gave me a great overall understanding of project management as a process, and also provided us with tools we can use in everyday life. I thoroughly enjoyed all the modules.”
“Taking this course has given me information and knowledge for how to deal with communication, negotiation, and conflict, not just with staff members and employees, but with anyone. Having completed the course, I now find myself approaching most tasks or chores – at work or outside of work – as a “project” and break it down for how to best get it done.”
“My goals in taking the course were to acquire a more in-depth knowledge of project management and to learn how to use Microsoft Project software as a tool to facilitate managing projects. My expectations were exceeded. Our final class assignment was to use the software to document a project of our choice. I chose a project I completed a year ago, and now it could possibly be used by any of our properties since the template has already been completed and could save them valuable time.”
“By completing this course and obtaining a valuable certificate from the University of Delaware recognized by the Project Management Institute (PMI®), I’m more confident in my job, and it gives me a start if I wish to pursue the Project Management Professional (PMP®) designation. I would highly recommend this course to anyone that would like to pursue this certificate and gain valuable knowledge that can be used every day.”
