Project Management Professional Development


In additional to the annual project management symposium, we offer a variety of professional development opportunities to help you further your project management knowledge and earn or maintain your professional credentials. While these professional programs do not earn academic college credit, they may qualify as the education contact hours required before taking credentialing exams and as continuing education contact hours for maintaining your credentials.

PMP, PMBOK and PMI are registered marks of the Project Management Institute, Inc.

The Applied Project Management Forum is a bimonthly speaker event sponsored by the UT Dallas Project Management Program. It was formed to facilitate ongoing education for project managers on topics that are relevant in today’s business world. Speakers from both the business and academic communities share their experiences and insights.
