Escuela Global de Dirección de Proyectos, GSPM

Manage your projects with the knowledge and tools from a world-class graduate degree program

The Master in Project Management (MPM) at the Global School of Project Management (GSPM) is a graduate program with international accreditation, designed to develop and strengthen your project management skills, supported by an online learning-teaching environment.

The MPM Program was the first, in Latin America and the Caribbean to obtain, in 2009, the international academic quality accreditation for project management programs from the Global Accreditation Center (GAC) of the Project Management Institute (PMI). It is, at the present time, the only program that has been accredited in the region in both online and blended learning modalities, and in both English and Spanish. The University for International Cooperation (UCI, for its acronym in Spanish) is also the first university in the region to obtain, in 2001, the recognition as Registered Education Provider (R.E.P. No. 1371) from PMI. UCI is currently an approved R.E.P. at the Global Provider level.

GSPM´s programs in project management have more than 2,000 graduates in over 40 countries, indicating their wide acceptance and recognition. They are offered in Spanish, in modalities with and without classroom attendance (b-learning, e-learning), and in English through e-learning.

“My experience has been most rewarding. The virtual method is flexible, yet demanding and rich in content and learning. Socially, a vast majority of fellow students have kept constant contact and communication through social networks making the experience close, fun and cooperative, within an honest and professional framework. I hope I will meet many of them personally someday.”
María Lorena López, Master in Project Management
