Project Management Institute (PMI), the world’s leading association for the project management profession, has partnered with the Latin American Council of Business Schools (CLADEA) to introduce business school professionals and next generation project managers to the profession of project management. Project management is at the center of change, making it especially important, during great disruption times, to educate future world leaders about the importance of project management.

During the agreement, PMI will cooperate with CLADEA and its 142 member institutions in Latin America to create and share content with a focus on project management research and best practices for teaching project management – all in Spanish and Portuguese. In addition, PMI and CLADEA executives will participate in virtual and live events to help publicize the profession and its importance.

“Whether 5 or 75 years old, everyone completes projects and can benefit from project management skills,” said Ricardo Triana, PMI Director General in Latin America. “The strategic partnership with CLADEA helps us to interact with students from all over Latin America interested in project management while they are graduating. It also offers PMI and CLADEA the opportunity to help educational institutions understand the important role that management of projects will play in the new working ecosystem and learn what resources are needed to teach project management in the Latin American region. ”

As part of the agreement, PMI will extend two benefits to CLADEA member institutions:

This new normality in which they will receive the economy will show them important challenges, both as entrepreneurs and as workers in different sectors. We believe that it will be it is beneficial for students to have project management skills for their lives, which will allow them to move forward with agility and security in the face of new projects that the economy will need to recover “, said Manuel Ortiz de Zevallos, Executive Director of CLADEA. “In partnership with PMI, the leading association in this sector will allow us to promote research and education in project management in our societies, in addition to helping us to strengthen the educational capacity in our member institutions in Latin America.”
