Top 10 Graduate Project Management Schools

Students who are interested in pursuing graduate degrees in project management are good leaders who understand the importance of efficiency and conservation of resources. Most graduate project management programs fall under the wider term of management. Whereas management incorporates a broader understanding of leadership and big picture functioning, as well as detailed analysis, project management normally refers to individual projects. This discipline and career appeals to those who can apply all of their strength and intellect to one goal in particular.
