Responding to industry trends, Ferris State University's College of Business Graduate Programs has created graduate-level advanced studies certificates. These four course sequences can be used to obtain stand-alone certificates or as emphasis areas leading to master's degrees in either Information Security and Intelligence or a Master of Business Administration based on the philosophy of performance metrics-based management.
This project management certificate prepares students for careers in program, project, and portfolio management consistent with Project Management Institute's Project Management Body of Knowledge including integration, scope, time, cost quality, communication, human resources, risk, and procurement. Students research leadership styles and learn how it differs from management. Projects are assessed for risk and risk management strategies constructed using ethical approaches.
