FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Project management is incredibly important to keep businesses functioning properly. Without clear expectations underpinning the many types of everyday tasks, project executors don’t know who needs to do what by when.

Project managers are crucial to set priorities, manage processes, audit workflows, guard against scope creep, reduce costs and keep the big picture in mind so everyone involved in a project can feel free to perfectly execute the details.

Businesses must work persistently towards organizing and solidifying their processes for prioritizing and completing projects. Project managers are on the front lines helping to keep business running smoothly.

The total cost of tuition and additional expenses can vary widely based on eligible transfer credit and financial aid opportunities. View the Herzing University Tuition Wizard or learn more about tuition and financial aid.

Yes! You will learn skills adaptable across many industries and possess abilities sought after by employers everywhere. Get educated, better yourself, and build yourself a new career with all sorts of potential.

Requirements to become a project manager will vary by employer. There is always a balance of formal education vs. experience.

Holding a bachelor’s degree in project management signals to hiring managers you have invested the time to build the fundamental skills necessary to succeed in the role. With a degree and a proven track record in real-life project management, you can become qualified for more and more positions and earn more choice in your career path.

Yes, a bachelor’s degree is a factor in determining your eligibility. Current eligibility requirements for the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification include:

  • Holding a 4-year degree
  • Three years leading projects
  • 35 hours of project management education/training or CAPM Certification

You will need to gain experience to qualify for the PMP exam and earn your certification whether you earn a bachelor’s degree or not. However, earning a degree in project management can best build your skills and get you there faster—not only to get certified, but to truly excel as a project manager.

Project managers run projects and project teams. They help businesses keep track of multiple assignments and meet important deadlines. A project manager needs to excel as a communicator, keep up with multiple tasks and remain cool when the pressure is on.

Entry-level project managers usually assist with a specific aspect of managing projects, while mid and upper-level project managers will run teams, working directly for organizations or in a consulting role.

Project management is not a profession that’s perfect for every personality type. Project managers often wind up wearing many hats and are accountable to complete tasks on time and on budget. People will look to you to deliver the final word and set expectations for what needs to be done, who needs to do it and when they need to do it.

As with any goal-oriented position in a supervisory role, project management can be stressful.

However, it’s a highly enriching career in that you are constantly learning and honing your skills. Every day will be a little different and there will always be new little “fires” to put out. If you thrive in that sort of environment, you are a great fit for a role in project management.
