Andy Kaufman
Adjunct Faculty, Quinlan School of Business

"For seasoned project managers or newcomers with zero experience, this course gets everyone caught up quickly to develop and deliver key projects. I would recommend this class to project managers at any level, office staff that helps in project administration duties, or anybody who must complete deliverables on a schedule regardless of scope."

Amy Ehret
Project Manager, Ehret Inc.

"The course was phenomenally executed online and fulfilled all aspects of the in-person iterations of the course. The instruction was knowledgeable and the class interaction was even more engaging in the virtual format."
