It was like David versus Goliath: In one corner, the 6 credits offered by UW-Platteville’s MS Project Management program to all admitted students who have the PMP credential; in the other corner, the Project Management Institute’s Global Accreditation Center (GAC). Something had to give in this epic battle and something did give, but not without a fight. All prospective students who would like to earn their masters degree in Project Management are strongly urged to apply before February 1st, in order to take advantage of a time-restricted benefit that UW-Platteville has so generously offered these past several years. After February 1, the MSPM program will offer only 3 credits for the PMP credential, to comply with GAC’s accreditation requirements. Though it loses the popular 6 credit award feature, UW-Platteville gains accreditation approval by GAC, which, in turn, gives you the opportunity to be a part of something even more special. Your Master’s Degree will be earned at one of only 22 schools worldwide which have been accredited by GAC. Though all great battles have heartache and loss, UW-Platteville achieved victory that day. You can be a part of it by earning your master’s degree from UWP’s accredited program. Best of all, you can have your cake and eat it too by taking advantage of the 6 credit PMP benefit before it expires February 1. Don’t let that benefit go to waste—get applied to the MSPM program before February 1st and receive those credits. You’ll earn an outstanding degree, with a highly valued worldwide accreditation.
