The University of Scranton to host the Annual Project Management Competition in November

Students solving an issue at a table

Let the competition begin! Come compete against area colleges and universities for the top prize.

The Annual Project Management Competition is an exciting and educational opportunity for undergraduate students to test their knowledge and hone their project management skills in a fun and competitive environment.

Competing student teams from colleges and universities in the region spend a jam-packed day of learning, sharing, networking and competing utilizing a dynamic and educational project management business simulation. Teams are challenged to make smart and timely decisions based on key project management metrics and variables. The team who makes the best decisions earns the privilege to hoist the trophy and earn the 2020 Project Management Competition Winning Team accolades.

So, we encourage regional colleges and universities to send their best teams to compete this year. The Annual Project Management Competition is a great opportunity to expose students, professors and schools to practical and hands-on learning to supplement classroom instruction in programs and majors including: project management, supply chain, logistics, operations management, business administration, engineering, and healthcare information technology.

Send your best…………..to beat the rest!
