Should I bother getting a masters in project management?


#1

I have never seen a degree in project management as a requirement for the job of a project manager. What are the initial jobs one can get with a masters in project management? Or should I just stick to onlone courses rather than burning my money on a Masters in PM?

A master’s in project management without any experience isn’t worth much. and you might have difficulty getting any job without any experience with or without a master’s degree.

One other thing to be cautious about is that the world of project management is changing rapidly as a result of Agile in many areas such as software development and many universities have not updated their curriculum to reflect that.

My advice is to get some experience first…you might have to do some pro-bono or volunteer work to build up some experience
