  1. Hi sir…. I am really Interested in Studying Project Management at the school of project management where you are involved. But what I Would really like to find out from you is what is the benefits in going into Project Management.

    Please if you could help me i would really appreciate it.


    • In response to the question you asked about project management, it is a great career to have. The ability to see an idea that is drawn on a piece of paper appear some time later as a product or deliverable is a highly motivational force. Companies are always looking for self-motivated individuals that can convert ideas into deliverables. Most people that enter the project management career path remain there for decades and may even retire as a project manager.

      As for your second question, we do not have a “school of project management.” The international Institute for Learning is a provider of project management education for corporations around the world, but we do not offer undergraduate or graduate degrees in project management.
