Project-based industries are poised for historic expansion and so is the need for technical project managers trained to lead complex software and hardware projects to completion.
In North America, the Project Management Institute expects more than 128,000 job openings for project managers (PMs) each year through 2030. Nearly 70% of organizations say they are placing a high priority on hiring PMs with technical skills.
If you’re ready to create clarity, work through challenges to find smart solutions, and lead the teams behind the scenes of software and hardware development, MIT xPRO's Technical Project Management program is for you.
National average salary for technical project managers in the United States
Global number of project managers needed to meet demand through 2030
Growth in the software development sector of project management through 2030
