Numerous courses in project management are offered in Quebec. There is a variety of options ranging from short training courses to Master’s and Doctoral degrees offered in both official languages. 

For example, the Project Management Department at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) has one of the world’s most important team of researchers in project management. 

There are also a number of Registered Education Providers (REPs) in Quebec that offer residents a wide variety of courses in Project Management. For the complete list of organizations that are part of the REP program in Quebec, click here

Additionally, PMI-Montreal also offers preparation courses for the principal project management certifications. For more information, click here.

Both the training courses and University programs provide an opportunity and context to improve technical knowledge in the field as well as networking. Contact with professors and other professionals is important for those who want to learn how the field of project management is defined and practiced in Quebec and also to better integrate into the Quebec project management community. 

 

                    

« Following a training program in Quebec for someone who comes from another professional or cultural context is important because it teaches local professional best practices, gives credibility and increases their professional network » (Marc Messier).

                    

 

Below is a list of some programs of interest:

UNIVERSITY PROGRAMS AND COURSES IN PROJECT MANAGEMENT

OTHER INSTITUTIONS

 

                    

« The Project Management Masters Program offered by UQÀM's School of Management is recognized for the emphasis on soft skills, which are important for everyone who works in the Project Management field.

One graduation program that attracts a lot of attention is the Short Graduate Programme, also delivered by UQÀM's School of Management, because it can be taken as a full-time or a part-time program. It represents an interesting option for those who are seeking a graduation diploma shorter than a complete masters course in Project Management.

For those who don't have much professional experience, the Coop modality is a very interesting entry door for the field. This format was created 10 years ago, and alternate courses and internship periods, resulting in a placement rate very close to 100% » (Brian Hobbs).
