Welcome to the Global School of Project Management at UCI!
Receive a cordial greeting from the administrative and academic staff of the Faculty of Project Management, which supports the Global School of Project Management (GSPM).
In order to meet the needs for sustainable, innovative and successful development of individuals, companies, public institutions, NGO’s and other organizations, GSPM promotes multidisciplinary and international educational experiences of high impact in the lives of its students. Based on the study and application of good practices in project management, such as those proposed by the Project Management Institute (PMI) and the Green Project Management (GPM), GSPM teaches and practices the discipline of project direction and management, which specializes in fostering development and change through initiatives that move society and its members.
Since 2009, UCI’s GSPM has held the privilege, but also the responsibility, for having the first Master in Project Management program, in Latin America and the Caribbean, in online and blended modalities, in Spanish and in English, accredited by the Global Accreditation Center (GAC) of PMI. This distinction completes the prestigious condition as Global Registered Education Provider (Global R.E.P.) that UCI holds since 2001.
Our programs in Project Management embody the fundamental principles of today’s world in terms of interaction, interconnectivity, competitiveness, efficiency, accessibility, flexibility and technology. These are vital characteristics to form a foundation of higher education of the highest quality in our students, who are professionals committed to their careers and their role as agents of change in a world that requires it promptly.
GSPM offers the Master in Project Management Program and other academic programs in modalities that are 100% classroom attendance, blended, and 100% online. In the latter two cases, the student’s progress towards acquiring competencies is accompanied, not only with expert facilitators in their field of action, but also with the virtual platform used by UCI, which favors the creation of virtual learning communities, collaborative and meaningful learning, the development of competencies, the strengthening of soft organizational skills, communication, conflict resolution, discipline and results orientation. Along with individual technical skills, the development of teamwork skills, of knowledge integration, and of holistic and inclusive approaches to problem solving are encouraged.
Projects are expression and yearning for improvement. For this reason, we work with innovative topics, which start out from current trends in education, science and technology, but are based on real actions. “Glocality” is a challenging way to confront these formative processes: global perspectives and local actions.
Our students, who come from diverse national and labor backgrounds, experiences and disciplines, foster dynamic learning, with exchanges and enrichments that complement a contemporary education and allow for analysis and for innovative and integrative proposals: instead of selfish competition, cooperation for success; instead of a network for self-profit, concern for common achievement…
The projects are not only our “work”: they cover all the phases of our life!.
