To advance the profession, PMI helps universities educate the next generation of project professionals.
Resources From PMITeach
In response to the growing demand from universities, PMI launched new undergraduate curriculum and resources. These materials, accessible from the academic-focused website PMITeach.org, provide a reference for schools interested in introducing project management into their curricula or expanding their current offerings.
The Global Accreditation Center for Project Management Education Programs (GAC) accredited its 100th degree program and released revised eligibility requirements and accreditation standards. The standards will help universities prepare students to meet the anticipated project management needs of business and government organizations. The GAC program has maintained 98% retention.
Two new projects help to build bridges between academics and practitioners.
For practitioners, we developed short summaries about select PMI-funded research projects and articles previously published in PMI’s Project Management Journal®.
Our academic and chapter teams collaborated on the Chapter Planning for Academic Outreach program. The goal is to expand academic relationships through PMI chapters, in order to build awareness of PMI and the project management profession within the academic community.
