About the course

Program managers play a mission-critical role in their organizations, providing essential strategic direction that directly impacts business outcomes. Great PMs have the communication and leadership skills needed to work with diverse stakeholders to blend disparate projects into an effective, unified program plan. These abilities are in high demand at large tech firms and in other major industries.

In this two-course certificate program, you’ll study material that directly aligns with the Program Management Professional (PgMP)® certification exam. Develop a deep understanding of this key business role as you discover how to orchestrate all stages of a program — development, launch, life cycle, support and closure. Learn from experienced program managers and your peers as you improve your career trajectory.


  • How to define, realize, measure and sustain planned program benefits
  • Different aspects of program governance

  • Strategies for the synchronized management of related projects that span roles, organizations, regions and cultures



Enjoy a blend of in-person classes and online study. You attend online class sessions in real time and interact with your instructors and fellow students via web conferencing, chat or phone. You’ll learn with the same group of students throughout the program, getting ample opportunity to connect with each other and your instructors.
