Project Management Certification

Once again, the Tauber Institute, in conjunction with the International Project Management Association (IPMA), is sponsoring a Project Management certification class and exam for graduate business and engineering students, alumni, and staff.

In order to participate, you will need to reflect upon a project management experience (for example: a work project, an engineering design experience/senior capstone, Ross' MAP project, Tauber team project, etc). If you cannot make it to the classes (due to project travel, MAP, or other another class), the sessions will be recorded. Homework (mastery verification) will be required after each session.

The cost to an individual to take the exam is normally $595, however, Tauber is offering the exam at a substantial discount to non-Tauber students:
$550 for U-M alumni or public
$425 for U-M students, U-M employees, or Tauber alumni
$325 for U-M Ross School of Business or U-M College of Engineering staff
$225 for Tauber Institute students
$145 for previous students to retake the exam

Certification is valid for 5 years. Three certification classes will be taught by Professor Eric Svaan on the following dates:

Sunday, March 13 (1:00 pm - 4:00 pm)
Sunday, March 27 (1:00 pm - 4:00 pm)
Sunday, April 10 (1:00 pm - 4:00 pm)

The certification exam, administered by IPMA-USA is scheduled for May 1, 2022 (11:00 am) virtually. Successfully passing the exam will yield IPMA's Level D certification (Certified Project Management Associate).

Project Management is a powerful skill set to have in your toolbox as you look for full-time employment!

What is IPMA Level D® (Certified Project Management Associate)? The IPMA Level D is an internationally recognized entry-level qualification in the area of project management. This designation, which demonstrates the individual's ability to understand the basics of project management, is similar to the exam-oriented, knowledge-based certifications of other major Project Management associations. For many, Level D® is the first step towards a professional project or program manager role. It is the first step in a sequence (C, B and A) to be earned by demonstration of success in larger PM responsibility sets.
