Two Ways to Learn

With Tempo Learning™ by Walden, you can earn your degree on your own schedule, at your own pace, building on your existing skills, knowledge, and experience. In addition to the competency-based Graduate Certificate in Applied Project Management program, we offer a course-based option.



Preset course start and end dates help you manage your schedule over time. Knowing these dates makes it easier to plan ahead in completing your program.

The course-based approach exposes you to new material as well as reinforces and updates your knowledge in areas you’ve already mastered.

Your fellow students will be learning the same material at the same time, so if you find yourself struggling, you can connect with them for additional support.

Complete competencies at your own pace, based on your ability to demonstrate understanding of their content. At the beginning of each term, you will map out your learning goals in partnership with your Academic Coach.

You can use what you already know to accelerate your progress, potentially saving you time and money.

If you find materials challenging, you can slow down and spend additional time with them. You can also raise your hand to get support directly from our Faculty Subject Matter Experts.

Compare highlights of the Tempo Learning™ and course-based formats to decide which best suits your career goals and learning style.

MS in Project Management Graduate / DBA Student
While I was deployed to Iraq, I conducted research and determined Walden University would be a great fit, allowing me to achieve the credibility I need to meet my goals for the future.
Looking back on my MBA program, it is impossible for me to not recognize the leaps and bounds of progress I have made both personally and professionally.
I liked the convenience of distance learning. As a wife, mom, and career woman, I was unable to sit in a classroom several times per week.
