YPSILANTI - Eastern Michigan University is partnering with York University of Toronto, Canada, to deliver the master’s certificate in project management to EMU–Livonia. This marks the first time the program is available anywhere in Michigan.

            As the premier supplier of global executive education, York University’s Schulich Executive Education Centre (SEEC) partners with leading academic institutions across North America to enhance the quality of their programs by leveraging local faculty and regional expertise. The program is made possible by collaboration between SEEC and EMU’s Professional Education Center (PEC), which provides customized organizational training and development programs through EMU’s College of Business.

            The project management certificate program provides the comprehensive training for all areas of the Project Management Body of Knowledge and equips participants to successfully sit for the Project Management Professional certification exam. The certificate is completed through nine modules, scheduled for Fridays/Saturdays, Oct. 6, 2006 thru Feb. 3, 2007. All modules take place at EMU–Livonia, located at I-275 and Six Mile Road.
