Academic Programs & Research
Advance the Profession
PMI is committed to advancing the science and practice of project management by supporting the work of academics through its research and education programs.
Project Management Curriculum
Designed “by faculty, for faculty,” the curriculum guidelines and teaching resources can be used to introduce a basic course or integrate project management topics and concepts into existing courses. The flexible guidelines and teaching materials can be customized to reflect your disciplinary focus, teaching approach, student profile, and course structure. Get started at pmiteach.org.
