The demand for certified project professionals is growing strongly. When making a decision on which project management development programme to invest in, reputation is of paramount importance. The Institute of Project Management’s faculty is led by its programme director Ed Naughton, who is an internationally recognised expert and a member of the powerful IPMA Education and Training Board. His colleagues on this board are world thought leaders from Switzerland, China, Romania, Greece, and Italy.
This level of international exposure ensures that the very best and latest in terms of practice and thinking is designed into the institute’s programmes.
The institute’s graduates are its greatest ambassadors, as witnessed by its 2012 Graduate of the Year Awards winner, Gavin Murphy from UPC. “In the last 10 years, I have seen huge changes in the profile and importance of project management within Irish organisations,” Mr Murphy said. “I wholeheartedly believe the institute has been instrumental in effecting this change by turning out such great project managers and championing the profession with their flagship certified and strategic diploma programmes and internationally recognised certification.
“While I found the diploma challenging, I also found it to be very rewarding by gaining new insights and perspectives through the course of the programme.”
