The curriculum answers public sector needs based on proven best practices in public and private sector organizations.

Ten in-depth modules provide participants with the opportunity to focus on complex program management discipline using proven principles, strategies and results for leading large-scale efforts that include parallel project delivery typically governed by a simple management structure.
