B.S. in Project Management

Worldwide Embry-Riddle Masters Project Management

From developing transformative technologies to launching bold new products, companies in every industry need projects delivered on time and on budget with minimal friction. Project managers have the opportunity to work on leading-edge ventures in fields of their choice. And the need for the expertise of these project leaders is only growing.

As one of the few undergraduate degree programs in this dynamic field, the Embry-Riddle Bachelor of Science in Project Management (BSPM) will help you master the skills to lead the new projects and strategic initiatives that keep companies ahead of the curve. The project management curriculum was developed entirely by certified PMPs®, industry leaders who possess the recognized global standard for project management knowledge and experience issued by the Project Management Institute® (PMI) – the worldwide leader in the development of standards for the dynamic profession of Project Management.

BSPM graduates will be equipped to manage, drive and execute on vital projects required by companies today and in the future. They will also be prepared to pursue certification or continue on with higher education.

Project Management students who wish to continue on to a master's degree may enroll in courses in the 4+1 option outlined in this program.

BSPM-MSPM 4+1 Program

Students who are accepted in the 4 + 1 program, spend three academic years in undergraduate-level study and then, during their senior year, will take up to three graduate-level courses that will meet the undergraduate 400 level elective and graduate program core  requirements (when a B grade or better is achieved). Upon completion of the BSPM  requirements, students will  be enrolled in graduate school and can complete their degree in one year.  In any graduate course taken by an undergraduate student, a grade  of B or better must be earned. If a grade  of C or F is earned in any of the courses taken in lieu  of 400 level elective credits, the student will be removed from the program and may continue to complete the BSPM  degree only. Students will use the virtual forms application site to work through the application, recommendation, and approval process.
