I am about to graduate with a B.S. in Management Studies and would like to eventually become a project manager. I know there are a lot of certifications you can get, but would like to really focus on this kind of grad work.


Depends on what kinds of projects you mean. Generally, you need management skills and also enough knowledge of the work the project entails to be able to communicate with the team. If it’s engineering you are talking about — building things most generally — the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor has both a good School of Business Administration and a good School of Engineering. So you could get all of what you need there. Also have a heck of a good time: I loved Ann Arbor in the early 1970s, and I’m sure it’s still a great place to go to school.
