Job requirements will vary by employer. You don’t need a master’s degree for entry-level project management roles. However, if you want to stand out in the job market for middle- or upper-level project management roles, earning an MBA in Project Management can help.
A master’s or MBA in project management is especially helpful if you earn a degree that includes preparation for the Project Management Professional® certification exam (PMP) from the Project Management Institute®.
Managing large projects among several individuals or teams and coordinating their association is its own science. Earning an MBA in project management helps you build a strong ability to smoothly manage enterprise-level projects.
