Message from the Dean

I am pleased to welcome you to the Master of Science in Management – Project Management – Online (MSPM) at New England College (NEC), one of the most innovative and relevant programs available today for business leaders with Project Management responsibilities. Whether you work for a large or small company, a government agency, or for yourself, your organization moves forward on a project-to-project basis. The success of your projects is dependent on your ability to manage complicated and competitive challenges. NEC can help you meet these challenges with confidence.

As a NEC MSPM graduate, you will be assuring present and future employers that their projects will be in capable hands, brought in on-time and on-budget. The MSPM is an impressive business credential that enables you to demonstrate advanced skills in communication, financial, and Organizational Management; the creation of quality work environments; strategic planning; costing strategies; contract management; and other essential tools vital to effective Project Management.

The program integrates the nine Project Management Book of Knowledge competency areas into the curriculum, preparing the student to be an effective decision-maker essential for project success. Many of our students pursue PMI certification both during and after degree completion. Our MSPM students and graduates are amazed at the level of convenience offered by this rigorous and challenging course of study. You now have the opportunity to earn your Master’s Degree without placing your career on hold or relocating.

Learning in our MSPM online program, supported by an extraordinary 24/7 technical support system, our students are not only able to retain their present jobs, but actually enhance them by learning problem-solving and critical thinking skills, thereby adding stature to their reputations while advancing their credentials.

With a manageable time commitment of approximately 15 to 20 hours per week of study, and faculty who appreciate the challenges of balancing this commitment with home and work schedules, the MSPM program offers working professionals the perfect avenue for personal and professional growth in the area of advanced decision-making. The immense value it will add to your working life begins with the decision you are about to make – to take the next step toward achieving leadership in Project Management.

I look forward to welcoming you to New England College.
