Humber is proud to have the highest graduate employment and employer satisfaction rate of the GTA colleges based on Colleges Ontario’s key performance indicators for college graduates in 2022-2023.

Program Overview

Humber's Project Management Ontario College Graduate Certificate program prepares you to manage complex projects and programs. Given the recognition that project management skills and competencies have to the success of all organizations, this program attracts candidates from diverse backgrounds and industries.

In just two semesters, you will learn the skills needed to move a project through conceptualization, initiation, planning, execution, control and closing. You will thoroughly explore the key stages of the project life cycle, project economics and financial analysis, risk and stakeholder management, and professional best practices through a comprehensive project delivery model. You will also learn the importance of people, processes, and business/strategic alignment to project success. Students also learn about the adaptive/agile approach to product management and the various framework that fall under the agile umbrella. Trends in project management including cutting-edge technology and electives in areas such as information technology, construction and data analytics are also covered. This program culminates in an experiential learning opportunity or capstone where students have the opportunity to examine a real-world project with an external industry sponsor and provide recommendations on how the project design, planning and implementation and outcomes could be improved. This program has several employer and networking opportunities designed to increase a student’s opportunities for employment upon graduation.

Courses

At Humber, courses are delivered in a variety of formats:

In-Person - An in-person course is delivered fully on campus.

Online Asynchronous (A) - An online asynchronous course has no fixed class schedule and allows students to engage with the course at different times according to their needs. Faculty provide modules, which are completed independently by the students according to established deadlines.

Online Synchronous (S) - An online synchronous course is delivered fully online and requires faculty and students to participate in real-time according to a fixed schedule. Classes are scheduled for a specific day and time.

Hybrid - A hybrid course is a combination of in-person and online classes and follows a set schedule. Students must be available to attend in-person classes at scheduled times during the semester.

The chart below outlines the delivery options available for each course in this program, by campus. For some academic terms, there may be more than one delivery option available. You’ll be able to select your preferred options when building your course schedule during open enrolment. Preferences for course delivery will be considered on a first come, first served basis. Some Humber programs are also delivered fully online, where all courses are delivered online.

International students: the impact of studying from outside of Canada on Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) eligibility differs significantly based on when you start your program. Please review the PGWP eligibility before choosing your program and course delivery.

Your Career

The Project Management Institute (PMI) stated that project-based industries could be at risk due to the lack of skilled project managers, based on a study conducted by The Anderson Economic Group (AEG). In 2017, a significant talent gap was revealed that further presents opportunities for employment and career advancement in this area. In a PMI-commissioned study entitled, Project Management Job Growth and Talent Gap 2017-2027, AEG looked at 11 countries and found that by 2027, the project management labour force in key sectors was expected to grow by 33% (22 million new jobs) and consequently, employers would need some 88 million employees in project management-oriented roles. Recently the PMI has highlighted, through a similar study, industry’s focus on building digital skills and the technology quotient as important talent development priorities to complement technical, leadership and strategic/business competencies. Delivering value using a mix of project management approaches is a priority for these organizations.

Whatever sector you want to work in, the demand for leaders and team members with project management skills and competencies is growing. Our program has been designed to help everyone, from the new graduate to the experienced professional, looking to acquire this highly regarded and sought-after skillset.
