Project Managers

Advancement Prospects

A skilled and experienced project manager can advance to the position of program manager, who oversee multiple related projects, and portfolio manager, who selects, aligns, and prioritizes an organization’s projects based on its overall strategy. These positions will most likely be offered by large companies and organizations. Project managers also can advance to executive-level positions such as vice president of project management. A project manager with a background in technology can be promoted to the position of chief technology officer, while those with expertise in data acquisition and management can advance to the position of chief information officer. Others move up to become vice presidents, chief operating officers, and chief executive officers. Some project managers choose to open their own consulting firms, while others pass on their knowledge by working as college professors.
