In 2020, the Project Management Institute (PMI) and CLADEA decided to begin collaboration efforts, signing an initial cooperation agreement for 1 year, which was renewed for 5 more years in 2021.

The PMI is a non-profit institution, a leader in the Project Management industry, with more than half a million members from more than 180 countries. Its mission is to promote and disseminate good practices in Project Management for public and private organizations.

The strategic alliance between CLADEA and PMI has been proposed in order to strengthen Project Management in all of the Business School members of CLADEA, focusing on a specific set of services.

¿Who run it?

“CLADEA and PMI will carry out collaborative work oriented towards strengthening Project Management, as a discipline which promotes the development of the region.  We have planned a series of actions, for Business Schools to form multidisciplinary professionals, who apply knowledge, skills, tools and related techniques in projects that generate a positive impact on society”.

Pilar Ramos
Academic Coordinator

“The alliance between the Project Management Institute (PMI) and CLADEA is allowing us to present to the students of the business schools of Latin America the relevance of the skills granted by project management for them to be agents for change, as well as the tools we have available in  PMI to contribute to their learning and professional development process. Furthermore, in this joint effort we can support business schools in understanding the role that project management will play in the new work ecosystems, especially during the great moments of disruption such as those we are living through today.”
