Project Management

Education On and Off-Campus

Through strategic partnerships with external organizations, such as PMCentersUSA, the Katz Center for Executive Education facilitates professional educational opportunities. Typically, the programs are taught either on location at Alumni Hall or at the PMCentersUSA facility in RIDC Park (Route 28), but if a large group or organization is interested in a course we are able to bring the instruction to them.
