Walden’s PhD in Management was the only program available that offered studies in how to manage information environments.
I chose the Entrepreneurship specialization in Walden University’s Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) program because I want to become an expert in the field. Ultimately, I want to support the growing number of individuals who want to launch and run their own businesses efficiently and effectively.
The most rewarding aspect of pursuing my degree with Walden is effecting positive social change.
1Eligibility for the PMP® credential requires individuals to first attain specific educational and project management experience, including 35 contact hours of project management education and a minimum of three years, or 36 months, of project management experience, during which at least 4,500 hours were spent leading and directing project tasks. The final step in earning the PMP credential is passing the PMP exam. PMI has announced that it is making significant changes to the PMP exam that will be administered on January 2, 2021, and thereafter. Accordingly, successful completion of Walden University’s MS in Project Management program will result in conferral of a degree, but will not necessarily fully prepare the student to take the newly constituted exam.
