Project Management Closure FAQs

What is happening?

The in-person Project Management Certificate of Completion has been offered through McMaster University Continuing Education since 2010. After careful review, this in-person program ​will be closed. As a result, a new fully online program​ will launch in Spring 2020 term. 

Why is this happening?

Academic programs undergo a formal review process on a regular basis. This ensures that the curriculum is current and meets the needs of students, professional associations, and potential employers alike. When the program review committee deems that a program should undergo significant changes, it may be decided that the current program should close and a new program should launch. 

What does this mean?

Students in the current in-person Project Management Certificate of Completion program will have until April 2020 to complete their program requirements.

What are my options?

There are a number of options for you as a current student to consider:
  1. Complete your remaining in-person modules in Fall 2019 or Winter 2020.

  2. New students can take all six in-person modules in Fall 2019 or Winter 2020, or they can take modules 1-3 in Fall 2019 and modules 4-6 in Winter 2020. 

  3. After Spring 2020 if students have not completed the six in-person modules, they may present completed modules for possible Transfer of Credit into the new online program. This process will involved discussion with the Program Manager, and the student will need to produce official academic transcripts if modules were completed at another institution.
