Project Management & Professional Communication

Executive Professional Development for International Students

The School of Continuing Education supports MacEwan University’s international strategy of preparing students, faculty and staff to succeed in and contribute to a global society.

Every project comes with its own set of challenges, but the skills you need to manage each of them are the same: organizing and motivating the right team, delegating tasks, time and budget management, and strategic planning skills. MacEwan University, a Registered Education Provider (REP) with the globally recognized Project Management Institute (PMI)®, offers a unique and versatile series that provides essential project management training taught by certified Project Management Professionals (PMPs)®, delivering courses aligned with the PMI Project Management Book of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). This certificate is for any industry's project team members, project sponsors, managers and leaders; PMO managers and staff; individuals preparing to obtain the PMI Project Management Profession (PMP) designation.

If you are interested in acquiring the PMP certification, please visit PMI’s website at to learn about the requirements.

In addition to training in project management, you will develop your verbal, written and non-verbal communication skills and confidence. Topics such as the Canadian workplace and intercultural communication will support the development of your English professional communication skills and enhance your performance and success.

PMI, PMP, PMBOK, R.E.P. and the PMI Registered Education Provider Logo are registered marks of the Project Management Institute, Inc.
