INTRODUCING TO YOU: THE PROJECT MANAGEMENT COURSE
After reading the above heading, you might be wondering, “I am surely not going to pursue another course that is just an extension of what I learnt during my Graduation years”.
Keep calm! It’s not just another course.
What Is A Project Management Course Then?
Project Management Professional course, popularly identified across the world by its abbreviated form PMP, is currently one of the hottest Educational Programs in the field of management, pursued by pupils across the various educational and professional streams.
This course comprises lectures, guidance and study material on a wide range of fundamental and most advanced aspects of “management” the knowledge of which is crucial in today’s corporate world. Students, pupils and professionals take up this educational course with the intention of refining and sharpening their management and leadership skills to be able to bag highly-paid jobs rolled out every week by leading MNCs of India and World.
From the IT sector to the Real Estate and from budding startups to established MNCs all of them roll out their pilot projects frequently in abundance and are always on a look-out for the professionals who can handle and deliver the projects as desired. You could be one of their recruits with a PMP designation!
The PMP certification is carried out and conferred upon the pursuers after they succeed in the PMP exam by one of the most reputed institutes in the field of management studies – Professional Management Institute, popularly known as the PMI. This accreditation Body also mentors the volunteers who set the management standards for the world; standards which are recognized and accepted by the American National Standards Institute.
Does The PMP Course Have Any Relevance In India? If yes, Then What Is Its Scope?
PMP certification is not only hot amongst the young graduates of India but also enjoys equal demand within the corporate circles. And this Video corroborates with my statement explaining why a PMP is an equally reputed and profitable position to hold in India as anywhere else in the world:
Scope Of Project Management In India:
To mark the beginning of our exploration, I urge you to first look at the scope of Project Management through the spectrum of Make in India concept. This nascent concept is itself suggestive and explanatory enough to invoke excitement amongst the fresh graduates and experienced project managers.
Can you imagine the intensity of push Make in India will provide to the new projects? Or the new projects that will be born after this gets formulated and implemented in a full-fledged manner? Who will handle these projects? Of course, the Indian Government will not allow the projects’ operations to get handed over to foreign hands, but who will lead and manage those projects then?
I would now leave it up to you to explore and further understand the Scope of Project Management through the spectrum of Make in India and move further to explore other territories where PMP certification rules the field.
1) Scope Of Project Management In The IT Sector
The Reason behind taking up this segment of the corporate sector first is to explain how the IT sector rolls out more projects in comparison to the other corporate sectors and how it has a greater scope for PMPs than many other different segments.
While the scale of projects rolled out every year, every month, and every week in the past five years has been very high when compared to the scale of previous roll-outs, the number of projects rolled out is also going high with the passage of time.
The Government of India is only keen on keeping this growth trend up
Roles & Responsibilities:
Though there is a plethora of roles and responsibilities that a Project Manager has to play in the IT sector and in any reputed organization to be precise, below listed are a few general ones:
- Bring innovation to the project at hand and provide valuable insights to it
- Mentor the technical team wherever needed
- Assist in testing the software related to the project
- Coordinate with different departments right from the beta development stage to the launch of the project
- Remain creative throughout the project by utilizing learnt skills
- Keeping the team and seniors acknowledged of all the processes
- Show the ability to juggle various responsibilities of different domains efficiently
- Accomplish the assignment within the framework of Triple Constraints
Eligibility for getting in:
While the eligibility and requirements to become an IT Project Manager in any reputed Indian firm differs from organization to organization and also with the change in the field of specialization, below pointed out are some basic requirements:
- Graduation in the relative Education field
- Experience of 6 months to 2 years of having worked as an Associate Project Manager
- Many IT firms prefer ITIL & ITSM certified pupils
- PMP certification is a must these days.
Perks and Benefits:
With a PMP certificate in hand and the required experience to back you up, you may easily bag a job that remunerates you beyond your expectations.

2) Scope Of Project Management In The Real Estate And Constructions Industry
The Construction Industry of India has always needed Project Management Professionals since the time unknown – as everywhere else in the world. And I would not be wrong in saying that the construction sector is a cluster of infinite projects that are currently in progress or are in their blueprint forms – awaiting for the right project manager to arrive and realize them.
The Bridges that we drive upon, the roads that we walk on, the buildings that we live and work in, and the Airports we use to fly are all epitomes of Project Management in the field of Construction. And this field is never going to stop expanding and recruiting Project Management Professionals.
Where the term project comes in, the concept of management can not remain far for longer. And where the need for the management of projects arises, the requirement of PMPs also arises undoubtedly.
Roles & Responsibilities:
A Project Management professional has many roles to play while involved in managing a construction project. Below listed are a few such responsibilities that a PMP gets assigned along with the project:
- Manage and monitor onsite activities physically
- Ensure that the construction material arrives on time and is of desired quality
- Handle the Triple Constraints efficiently
- Report daily about the accomplished part of the project and the WIP
- Remain in contact with the client consistently
- Deliver the project on time
There are also several risks inherent in becoming a PM in the construction sector like that of physical injuries. Also, the responsibility of a project manager in the construction sector does not end with the handing over of the accomplished structure, but only time decides whether the project was accomplished efficiently or not.
Eligibility for getting in:
Though many times a construction project is segregated into several small projects for achieving maximum efficiency these days, the eligibility to handle any of those projects remains almost similar.
Below mentioned are general eligibility requirements:
- A Master degree in the relevant field of education
- Minimum experience of 5 years of having worked in similar projects
- A PMP certification from a reputed institute
Perks and Benefits:
As a PM in the construction sector of India, you would earn no less than 5 Lac Rupees Per annum.

3) Scope Of Project Management In The Non-Technical Corporate Sector
Besides the above two discussed sectors of the Indian economy, there’s a huge demand for PMs in another less discussed sector. And that is the Non-technical corporate sector. If you’re a commerce graduate (just like me) and have not been a member of the elite IIM anytime in your life, then PMP certification is just the right thing that can bring you the fame and the job you’ve been waiting for all this while.
There are hundreds of MNCs that seek to hire non-technical professionals who can manage, supervise and accomplish their projects on time and deliver as per the expectations.
The Non-technical projects could be anything: from managing a contract based BPO of any major corporation to handling the customer reach-out programmes of banks, and from finding best investment solutions for wealth management companies to getting mergers and acquisitions done smoothly.
Apart from corporate MNCs, banks also often seek PMP certified pupils for getting their projects done. And you could be their recruit in spite of hailing from a non-technical background.
Roles & Responsibilities:
In the non-technical corporate sector, the roles and the responsibilities of a Project Manager remain unchanged, with few additions and subtractions to them. Have a look at the below list:
- Do research and analysis and come up with a clear roadmap for the project
- Prepare spreadsheets and reports about the progress made
- Provide with a basic layout of the project
- Assist the technical team wherever required
- Make shrewd decisions related to finances
- Mentor and guide the team to walk in line with triple constraints
- Provide valuable insights about management to the team
A non-technical PMP in the corporate sector holds no lesser importance than his/her technical counterparts involved in the project. After all, ”Management” is not restricted or bound by fetters to any particular field.
Eligibility for getting in:
- PMP certification from a reputed institute
- Minimum experience of 2 years of having handled identical projects
- Well-versed with modern applications
- Good soft skills.
Perks and Benefits:
The corporate sector does not treat non-technical Project Managers with biasedness when it comes to remuneration. And I insist that you check this survey by glassdoor.com for learning more about the perks that Non-techy PMs enjoy.
4) Scope of Project Management Overseas
I know it’s a faraway dream to get a job overseas, and more so if you hail from the non-technical field, and even more so if you are a layman in India.
But, isn’t this blog about dispatching all your doubts and worries to some faraway planet?
All the above-stated sectors are the key representatives of any economy, and their demands are identical everywhere. Countries like USA, China, that of Europe and that of the Middle East are developing so rapidly these days that the blink of the eye phrase would best suit to describe the rapidness of their growth. And globalization has only added to the rate of rapidness.
You just need to surf the right wave with the right board to reach the beach (Whoa! That’s poetic)!
Eligibility for becoming a Project Manager overseas:
To be eligible to work overseas needs thorough research and lots of home-work. But as a set rule, there are a few prerequisites to be fulfilled before you fly abroad and start managing projects, and they are:
- A PMP certification
- 4 Years of Graduation course in the relevant education field
- Minimum experience of 2 years of having led and accomplished or having been a part of 20 identical projects
Or if you are already working in an MNC, then with a PMP designation you will be all set and ready to apply for a promotion.
Perks and Benefits:
No need to mention the astronomical figures that Project Managers mint every year overseas. Check it out yourself over here.

You could start by providing consultancies about how to manage projects to new startups or identify what you are excellent at and establish yourself in that segment as a Project Managing firm. From taking up CCTV installation projects to managing public office complexes, and from taking up land survey projects to helping big corporations in their mergers and acquisitions, you could do anything. There are incalculable projects out there that have yet not been defined as projects to this day, let alone the thought of managing them.
