Project Management Industry Expert Extolls Virtues of UW-Platteville’s Program
I am pleased to share my experience with the University of Wisconsin-Platteville's Master of Science in Project Management program. As an alumna and current professor, I can say with certainty that it is a fantastic choice for anyone considering a career in the project management sphere. This program has something to offer whether you are a veteran of the industry or just starting out.
When I enrolled at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville in the early 2000s, they were among the first to offer 100% online graduate programs. UWP was really ahead of the curve. I was able to continue my career while obtaining an unmatched education – completing my courses when it fit my schedule.
UW-Platteville has been a pioneer in the field, with a long history of offering distance education. That reputation is supported by the number of universities that have attempted to copy how UW-Platteville has set up its online program. In many ways, I think UW-Platteville's track record stands on its own.
For me, the success of any program starts with its leaders – and that's certainly true for the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. I was struck – and still am – by the dedicated faculty and program coordinators. The late Dr. Ginger Levin served as my pseudo-advisor well after I graduated from the program and was an invaluable resource in the early days of my career. Her advice and guidance helped me build a solid foundation and seek new opportunities that established me in the field.
I cannot say enough about how much Bill Haskins has done for this program. He's been the program coordinator since I was a student in the early 2000s and is laser-focused on building robust and cutting-edge curricula for UW-Platteville students. For me, that's what sets Platteville apart. Bill and his team do not rest on their laurels – they ensure the program is evolving to meet the ever-changing needs of the field – which keeps the program fresh and relevant.
An aspect of the program that particularly impresses me is the recognition of professional experience. The program is accredited by the PMI Global Accreditation Center® for Project Management Education Programs. A selling point for me was earning credit for my PMP® certification. If you already have the certificate, you earn three credits toward your degree, and each course is worth 45 PDUs. If you're working toward your PMP®, you earn 12 months of required experience.
Having been part of the industry for two decades, I can unreservedly express the benefits of UW-Platteville's program. It fosters a learning environment that has been instrumental in my academic and personal growth, and I'm certain that the same can be true for you. I strongly urge you to join the UW-Platteville community; you will not be disappointed.
