Program Management for Government Concentration

The Dynamic Leaders and Organizations track offers cohorts of 10 students an optional concentration in Program Management for Government.  Throughout the complex changes in economic conditions, federal, state, and local Public Administrators rely on program managers to develop the framework and processes, which enable legislation to become effective, efficient, practical extensions of any legislation.  Program Managers are responsible for the ethical and responsible management of funds, personnel, contracts, and acquisitions.  The Program Management for Government concentration is the appropriate track for those seeking rewarding employment in government or in contracting organizations.

The Program Management for Government (PMG) concentration prepares graduates for professional certification in Program Management (PMP) from the Project Management Institute (PMI). The PMG students also prepare for the National Contract Manager’s Association (NCMA) certification as a Certified Federal Contract Manager (CFCM) or as a Certified Project Contract Manager (CPCM).

If you have a cohort of 10 students contact Admissions (202-884-9400).
