Business Project Management Certification Increases Career Opportunities

Adults who wish to learn new skills in order to advance in their current jobs, but do not have the time or money to commit to a new degree, may benefit from earning new certificate. For example, professionals who hold an MBA may have increased job prospects upon earning certification in business project management (BPM).

Those who are hired to conduct business project management often plan and implement changes within a company. These individuals are in charge of evaluating the performance of a business and those who are employed within it. According to a survey given by BPM Partners, the number of large companies spending over $1 million on BPM projects has increased by 6% in the last year.

"BPM is the most effective and sustainable method to directly reduce cost, errors and cycle times, and ultimately improve your bottom line," said University of San Francisco (USF) instructor Dean Walsh, professor of one of the new BPM certificate program courses.

Professionals who wish to earn this certification may want to consider enrolling in an online program, such as the one offered by USF. The school's online graduate certificate in BPM aims to cover all aspects of the industry, including key optimization tactics, critical BPM documents and tools, process-based organizations as well as vital links to business strategy.
