UMT Offers PMI Student Membership to All Students Who Enroll in Its Project Management Programs

ARLINGTON, Virginia, September 12, 2022

The University of Management and Technology (UMT) is pleased to announce that beginning in the Fall 2022 semester, it will cover the PMI membership fee for UMT students who enroll in UMT's project management programs. PMI is the Project Management Institute, the world's premier leader on the theory and practice of project management.

PMI student membership can benefit UMT students in many ways:

  • It's a step toward becoming a PM insider. PMI is the 900-pound gorilla in the PM arena, with close to 700,000 members worldwide and 300 chapters.
  • As a PMI student member, you have access to hundreds of documents and tools that cover good project management practice, including a free download of the famous world standard, the PMBOK Guide.
  • You have access to some 1,400 PM webinars, covering all aspects of project management practice.
  • You can join your local PMI chapter, where you encounter strong networking opportunities through face-to-face interaction with fellow project professionals at chapter meetings, seminars, and symposia.
  • You can serve as a volunteer who helps run the local chapter, or who works on global PMI teams to support PMI in its efforts to promote good project management practices throughout the world.

UMT recognizes that in educating managers to advance their careers, it is as important to help them strengthen their professional outlook as it is to learn how to employ the managerial tools and techniques they learn in the classroom. They need to actively engage themselves with the broad community of players in their field. UMT's coverage of PMI student membership fees opens the door to increasing their access to fellow PM professionals both in their local communities and throughout the world.

"PMI student membership is a great way for an aspiring PM professional to plug into the real world of PM practice, by getting actively involved in PMI," says UMT Academic Dean, Dr. J. Davidson Frame. "The networking opportunities PMI offers provide student members with access to the full range of people and institutional players that drive project management forward."
