Allie Jannetta

“I completed the Project Management graduate certificate program in Spring 2021 and achieved my PMP certification in Summer 2021. Having this education and subsequent certification opened the opportunity for me to obtain a six-month NASA internship, which eventually led me to a contractor role in project management and technical writing at NASA Ames Research Center. The project management curriculum at FSU showed me that just about everything in one’s life and work can be treated as a project. Taking readings from textbooks and articles and combining those with professor’s lectures allowed me to use project management techniques in real world applications to further my career and organize my personal life more efficiently.”

Project Manager at MIT Horizon

“As a practicing Project Manager I enrolled in FSU’s Project Management Graduate Certificate Program in order to build on the knowledge I gained earning my PMP from PMI. The instructions provided along with the case studies examined, proved very helpful in broadening my knowledge of the profession. I would recommend FSU’s Project Management courses to experienced project managers and to those exploring career options alike.”
