Why Choose a GAC Accredited Program?

Choosing a project management program is no easy task. While there are many factors to consider, an important one is GAC accreditation.

GAC accreditation is a testament that the program:

  • Demonstrates a commitment to academic quality and excellence
  • Meets global accreditation standards
  • Prepares students to enter the workforce

PMI Certification Requirements Reduced for GAC Graduates 

Graduates of GAC accredited degree programs will be granted substantial credit toward the experience requirement for all PMI certifications. This benefit applies retroactively to the program’s initial accreditation date. Learn more about this valuable benefit.

What is Project Management?

Project management is the application of knowledge, skills and techniques to execute projects effectively and efficiently. It’s a strategic competency for organizations, enabling them to tie project results to business goals — and thus, better compete in their markets.

The development of software for an improved business process, the construction of a building or bridge, the relief effort after a natural disaster, the expansion of sales into a new geographic market — all are projects that must be expertly managed to deliver the on-time, on-budget results, learning and integration that organizations need.
