UMT is one of the first universities to offer a project management program for their students, many of whom have gone on to accomplish their professional and career goals. One such student, Jaqueline H., a mother of two with a full-time career, saw an opportunity with UMT’s flexible online structure and enrolled in the program where she eventually graduated with an outstanding 3.9 GPA. Within months she was able to pass the PMP project management certification exam and went on to work in a hospital, tackling challenging projects with the skills developed at UMT.

• MBA, with a focus in project management
