Project Management Degrees at CTU Colorado Springs
CTU’s bachelor’s degree in Project Management is designed to help students prepare for the responsibilities related to planning, executing and supporting a wide-range of projects in business. While earning a degree in Project Management at our Colorado Springs campus or online, students have the opportunity to learn how to oversee a project from end-to-end and build proficiency in creating cost estimates, budget management, cost control, risk assessment, bid negotiation and contracts and performance reporting. Though Project Management is often associated with fields such as engineering and construction, these roles are increasing in the healthcare and information technology (IT) fields as well.1
At CTU Colorado Springs, our Project Management bachelor’s degree program aims to help students make the most of educational resources and develop practical experience to help them prepare for the Project Management Professional (PMP®) Exam**, an industry-acknowledged certification.
