The Project Management Institute’s Global Accreditation Center (GAC) Directors voted in October 2016 to confer GAC Accreditation status upon two additional Bellevue University programs, the Master of Project Management program and the Master of Science in Management of Information Systems, Information Technology Project Management Concentration.
In doing so, the GAC Directors recognize the strong commitment to project management educational excellence that has been demonstrated by Bellevue University. The accreditation of these two graduate programs will complement the Bachelor of Science in Project Management program which has been accredited by GAC since 2014. “Earning accreditation from GAC is a remarkable achievement,” said Mary Dobransky, Dean of the College of Science and Technology at Bellevue University. “This accreditation recognizes the hard work and dedication of the faculty and staff, and confirms to our students that they are receiving a quality education in line with all the standards set forth by PMI, the industry’s recognized leader.”
The Bellevue University Master of Project Management (MPM) is an advanced professional program that is academically recognized as a terminal degree. Bellevue University offers one of only three GAC accredited MPM programs in the U.S. The Master of Science in Management Information Systems (MS-MIS) is a program that provides students both technical competencies and management techniques needed for management positions in Information Systems and related industries. This program offers students the opportunity to specialize in several areas, including the Information Technology Project Management Concentration.
The MPM degree program was recently ranked #2 in the Top 10 Project Management Programs in the US by IntelligentHQ, and is listed in top ranking by CollegeRank, AffordableColleges and TopManagementDegrees. The MPM program was also featured in Project Eye Magazine (pg. 33-35) and covered in a thought leadership series by IntelligentHQ.com.
