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.

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


Benefits to Students Enrolled in GAC Accredited Programs

  • Students eligible to sit for a PMI credential exam may immediately apply the classroom hours from a completed project management course toward the contact hour requirement, rather than waiting until they graduate from the program. The student can be confident that these hours are pre-approved and will automatically be accepted toward fulfilling the contact hour requirement. Students who wish to claim contact hours should select “GAC Accredited Programs” as the education provider when completing the PMI credential application.
  • GAC accredited programs are now able to issue Professional Development Units (PDUs) to students who complete any individual registered project management course within their accredited degree program. The PMI credential holder can be confident that these PDUs are pre-approved, and will automatically be accepted toward fulfilling the PMI continuing certification requirement. Students should claim these PDUs under “Category A – Courses Offered by PMI’s Registered Education Programs (R.E.P.s), GAC Accredited Degree Programs, chapters and communities.”
