Project Management is a discipline that derives from different sciences, uses different techniques and has a great need for wider and more structured professionalism. The work of a Project Manager includes, in fact, a series of different types of skills, abilities, and knowledge: from technical ones, related to planning and tools for control, to managerial and behavioral ones, up to those related to the management of standard project processes. The central role of a Project Manager is, therefore, to guide a group towards the achievement of the project objectives, staying within the limits that time, costs, scope, and quality impose on them, at the same time seeking to optimize the use of resources that have been entrusted to him. In addition, an aware Project Manager as well as being able to lead a workgroup, must know how to negotiate with suppliers and customers and communicate with other stakeholders; in a nutshell, he must know how to relate to anyone who has anything to do with his project.

This Master in Project Management has been designed to provide all the necessary knowledge and skills to become or grow as a successful Project Manager and to guide the participants to the acquisition of the prestigious PMP® (Project Management Professional), or CAPM® (Certified Associate in Project Management) certifications of PMI ®, which are widely recognized and appreciated all over the world. The Rome Business School is a Registered Education Provider of the Project Management Institute.

The Master’s training hours are therefore recognized as contact hours by the PMI®, one of the requirements for accessing the certification exams.
