Arden University’s BSc Project Management has been awarded APM (Association of Project Management) Recognised Assessment status, making it the first university to achieve this recognition for a BSc Project Management course.
This new recognition accompanies the courses’ previous accreditation from the APM, with both endorsements signifying to employers that Arden’s Project Management students’ knowledge meets the latest industry standards, helping enhance future career options.
This also means that, upon completion of their course, students will be eligible to apply to the APM to become a Chartered Project Professional (ChPP) via Route 1.
Through this, students will be allowed to submit a shorter application and their technical knowledge component will have already been met, due to their degree. This unique status for the programme will allow graduates to progress as fast as possible to ChPP.
Holding chartership demonstrates exceptional project management capabilities and is the flagship benchmark for the profession.
‘I’m delighted that Arden University has achieved recognised assessments from the APM, our chartered body for the project profession.’ Said Dr Serkan Ceylan, Head of Arden University’s School of Supply Chain, Logistics and Project Management.
‘Our BSc Project Management is only the second Undergraduate programme, ever, to have achieved this prestigious status with the APM and we’re pleased this new status will allow our students to Fastrack their Chartered Project Professional (CHPP) application and secure all the benefits which accompany it.’
