Benefits of Accreditation

GAC accredited academic degree programs are members of a select group that embraces and promotes the discipline of project management.

GAC accreditation confirms that an institution’s project management degree program has been carefully assessed and that its scale, scope, and quality meet comprehensive, global standards for accreditation. It makes a public statement about the deep commitment of the institution and its faculty to ongoing evaluation and continuous quality improvement.
