Project Management Institute (PMI)


Project Management Institute (PMI) is the world’s leading project management organization. Applicants with PMI certifications are highly sought-after by employers and stakeholders, and respected by colleagues.

Yorkville University’s alignment with PMI’s requirements provides students with a pathway to obtaining both a BBA degree and the following PMI certifications:

Benefits for students:
• CAPM Eligibility: Students can meet the 23-hour project management education requirement by completing one BBA in Project Management course, and can write the CAPM certification exam before graduating.
• PMP Eligibility: Students can meet the 35-hour project management education requirement by completing two BBA in Project Management courses, and will further need 4,500 hours of leading and directing projects, instead of 7,500 hours, to be able to write the PMP certification exam.
• PMI examinations are based on the content in the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), which is extensively covered by the courses in the Project Management specialization.

Students who have CAPM or PMP certification will automatically get credit towards BUSI 3603: Introduction to Project Management. These students will also get credits towards courses completed from recognized colleges and universities, which will be handled on a per-case basis. Students’ work experience will be assessed for credits using Prior Learning Assessment Review (PLAR).
