For more than a decade, the Advanced Program in Project Management has offered leading-edge opportunities to develop advanced project management skills.

We have revised the APPM to flexibly meet the education needs of today’s busy project managers.

Our foundational workshop provides grounding in the organizational principles and hands-on practices in managing complex projects. Each of our additional modules builds on these dimensions, providing the understanding and expertise you need to confidently lead strategically important projects and manage complex change.

What People Are Saying

“The Advanced Program in Project Management does a phenomenal job weaving the fundamentals of team dynamics and people management into the foundational pillars of project management. The class environment set by faculty is both highly collaborative and authentic. The faculty’s ability to apply the project management methodology to real world scenarios challenged me to think ‘outside the box’ and has made me more effective, efficient and influential in my role today.”

— Paul Bruder, Manager, Ledcor Group of Companies

“The course content was engaging, practical, and insightful. You did an excellent job of organizing the material, effectively communicating concepts in class, and facilitating insightful dialogue among the participants. I appreciated how you took the course above and beyond the standard “textbook” approaches to project management and drew upon own your extensive experience to share useful and unique insights. In the intervening weeks since taking the course, many of the ideas and tools that you, Janice, and Eldon shared have provided a helpful framework for thinking about projects and for enhancing my effectiveness in the workplace. I have already recommended your course to others, and you can be sure that I’ll continue to do so in the future!”

— Matt Dyck, Manager, City of Edmonton
