Question How to become a project manager?

Hi all,

I'm a student and have to decide what I want to do for next year. Project manager is something I like more and more so I'm currently reading a lot of resources about the job.

I have a question about qualifications you have to have.

Since project manager seems to me being something where soft skills are more valuable than hard skills, do I have to have a degree to become a project manager or is it possible to use another path?

I thought it was a necessity to have a degree but read that article on a forum yesterday and it has changed my mind.... http://thinkthyme.com/project-manage...roject-manager

What are you thoughts on the subject?

Although you don't need hard skills, the role of a project manager goes far beyond just a degree. I don't think any reputable company will hire you without a degree and some experience.

Well, I think if you get a PM certification and apply for Junior Project Manager roles or Project coordinators you will be on the right path for a career as a Project Manager.
