About this program

Project Management + Entrepreneurship

Project Management

If you are looking for ways to leverage your engineering or information and communications technology degree to advance your career, consider Saskatchewan Polytechnic's new Project Management post-graduate certificate (PMPGC). The Project Management Institute (PMI) is predicting a 33% increase in project management jobs world-wide and Canada is expected to add an estimated 9,000 project management jobs every year for the next 10 years. These predictions present opportunities for those with the right training and skills.

The one-year Project Management post-graduate certificate program provides degree graduates with a strong foundation in essential project management skills. Our curriculum has been developed with input from industry stakeholders, which ensures students receive a relevant, work-focused learning experience.

You will study the fundamentals of project management, project initiation and planning, project scheduling and budgeting, directing and managing project work, procurement and contract management, alternative methodologies for project management, as well as project closing and evaluation. Several courses will help you prepare for Project Management Institute designation exams.

Saskatchewan Polytechnic gives you the opportunity to interact with industry through work-integrated learning opportunities, including course projects, and guest speakers. You will also build critical human skills through courses in leadership and professionalism, organizational behaviour and business communications.

Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurial spirit runs deep in Saskatchewan. Our past, present and future is built on innovators and creators--people who want to run their own business, carve their own career path and build a future for their family. The new one-year Entrepreneurship post-graduate certificate will give you the skills, the knowledge, even the beginnings of a professional network to launch your entrepreneurial career.

What sets the Entrepreneurship program apart is our focus on relevant, real-world learning. Get the skills you need to effectively manage a business, from the basics of accounting and finance to human resources, communication, marketing and leadership. Learn about social entrepreneurship and purpose-driven businesses, indigenous entrepreneurship and the role of technology in entrepreneurship.

Saskatchewan Polytechnic is known for our hands-on approach to learning. This means you will have many opportunities for applied learning, including preparing a feasibility analysis, creating an innovative solution to a problem and developing a business plan for a new venture.
