March 23, 2017
Drexel University’s College of Engineering today announces that the Project Management Institute (PMI), the world’s largest project management member association, has named it as a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.) effective March 1, 2017. R.E.P.s are organizations that have been approved by PMI to help project managers achieve and maintain the Project Management Professional (PMP)®, Program Management Professional (PgMP)® and other PMI professional credentials. These organizations have met PMI’s rigorous quality criteria for course content, instructor qualification, and instructional design.
Project managers are increasingly turning to R.E.P.s for certification training and maintenance, especially since global median salaries for the profession now exceed $81,000 (USD).

Anbari, PhD, PMP, Clinical Professor and Program Director of the Project Management program states, "We have an outstanding team that worked diligently to make this recognition possible for our students. We will continue to work with PMI to assure quality standards are met, giving the highest priority to the professional development of our students.”
Drexel University joins more than 1,500 R.E.P.s in more than 80 countries. These organizations include commercial training providers, academic institutions, and corporate training departments within corporations and government agencies.
