Job outlook

Their 2017 Project Management Job Growth and Talent Gap report found that demand for project-related workers could grow by as much as 33% globally from 2017-2027. Much of that growth is expected to take place in developing economies like China and India, but growth in the U.S. is also projected to be strong.

Now is a good time to earn the education you need to enter a growing career field.

Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve put together a quick quiz to help you find the right MBA for you.

Remember, earning your MBA with Herzing means you can choose two concentrations as part of your program, so you can add expertise in an industry like IT or healthcare to your project management MBA.

Mid- to upper-level project management jobs had strong earning potential in several industries.

Some examples of average annual salaries from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics include*:

These project management-related salaries are calculated at the national level, so local/state job markets may vary.

Yes, earning an MBA is worth it!

So many businesses and organizations need people who have an advanced understanding of today’s business world and people who have advanced skills in getting things done. A project management MBA offers you the opportunity to gain both sets of knowledge and skills.

With Herzing’s MBA in Project Management program, you can earn an IACBE®-accredited degree* that also prepares you for PMP® certification in as few as 20 months.

We’re here to help you take the first step.

When doing your research for a project management degree, you’ll notice that there are MBA programs with project management specializations, and master’s degrees in project management alone. There are differences between MBA degrees vs. master's degrees, and they mainly come down to versatility.

A Master of Business Administration (MBA) offers a wider range of executive-level leadership skills compared to a master’s degree in project management. With an MBA, you’ll be equipped not just for advanced project management roles, but for leading project management teams at a high level. This can prepare you to compete for a broader range of jobs once you start your search.

Additionally, Herzing offers a dual concentration option for MBA students, so you can combine a concentration in project management with one in healthcare management, technology management, or data analytics—just to name a few. This offers added expertise for project management leadership roles in a specific industry that interests you.

Absolutely. Herzing University makes it possible to pursue your MBA online at your own pace, so you can keep up with your classes when it works for you. You may choose full-time or part-time enrollment.

In addition to convenience, earning your MBA while you work lets you put skills you learn during class into practice at the office. This means you can gain insight into how theory applies in the real world right from the very first day of classes.

The Project Management Institute has education and experience eligibility requirements for PMP certification candidates. Our project management MBA will help you meet the education and project management-specific training requirements.

The experience requirement for people who hold at least a bachelor’s degree is three years of project leadership. Once you achieve that milestone, you may qualify to take the exam.

The Project Management Institute also offers the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)®.  This certification does not have an experience eligibility requirement, and you will be prepared to apply for the exam after completing two project management courses in your project management MBA program.

Learn more about PMP certification requirements from PMI.

Job requirements will vary by employer. You don’t need a master’s degree for entry-level project management roles. However, if you want to stand out in the job market for middle- or upper-level project management roles, earning an MBA in Project Management can help.

A master’s or MBA in project management is especially helpful if you earn a degree that includes preparation for the Project Management Professional® certification exam (PMP) from the Project Management Institute®.

Managing large projects among several individuals or teams and coordinating their association is its own science. Earning an MBA in project management helps you build a strong ability to smoothly manage enterprise-level projects.

We strive to make going back to school to advance your career as affordable as possible. Herzing offers several options for financial aid, including scholarships, grants, and loans.
