The Master of Project Management (MPM) Degree Program at WCU was the first such master's degree in the United States at a nationally accredited institution and the first one to be accredited by PMI (1983). The program is part of the Global Management and Strategy Department within the College of Business. MPM strives to be the pre-eminent comprehensive educational program for professional project managers, to advance the project management profession through teaching, research and service, and to develop leaders in the project management profession. Fully accredited at the national level, the goal of the program is to fit into the project manager's busy work schedule providing flexible, direct access to work-related graduate education from any location that has a communications link, at any time, and by making the best use of the latest advances in educational technology. Accreditations include PMI, AACSB and SACS.
