The B.S. in Project Management at Embry-Riddle Worldwide prepares its graduates to emerge from the program ready for a leadership role in a variety of industries and may even earn certification along the way.
The overarching goal of the Project Management graduate program at ERAU is to provide students with a dynamic educational experience that translates to the business world.
Project management courses are developed by faculty with Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification and all of our faculty can provide students with academic and career counseling.

In today’s complex, global business environment, an organization’s efficiency is often what sets it apart from the rest. With a Bachelor of Science in Project Management, you can get a solid foundation for project management work in sectors like technology, healthcare, global infrastructure, renewable energy and finance.
Having a strong grasp of concepts such as cost, human resources, stakeholder management, procurement and risk management fostered by a curriculum developed entirely by certified PMPs® gives project managers the tools needed to make effective and efficient decisions.
Project Management students who wish to continue on to a master's degree may enroll in courses in the 4+1 option, which allows students to complete their master’s degree in one year after finishing their bachelor’s degree.
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.
