by Vijayakumar Menon N completed this course, spending 5 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
Project management for Business professionals is a course that introduces you to practical concepts in the management of projects including various methodologies. The instructor, Peter Von Stackelberg uses a small number of videos, and plenty of reading materials from other websites to introduce you to the subject. The instructor has a lot of practical experience on Project management and participants get a good idea on the factors critical to managing different types of projects and the various common mistakes committed by project managers. Overall a great course for practicing project managers as well as business students who will have to manage projects of varying sizes during their career. The course materials focus more on the concepts of PMBOK methodology of the PMI (Project Management Institute) even though other methodologies like agile are covered in lesser detail.

I found this course to be very helpful in aiding my path towards receiving my PMP certificate. Please note that completion of the course does not guarantee a PMP certificate but at the very least it will set you up to do well on the test.
