To demonstrate that Granite State College is preparing students for the rapidly growing and highly demanded field of project management, the Master of Science (M.S.) in Project Management program at Granite State College was reaffirmed by the Project Management Institute Global Accreditation Center for Project Management Education Programs (GAC) in June 2022. GAC also accredited the college’s new Graduate Certificate in Project Management.

Degree programs that achieve GAC accreditation must demonstrate and meet the GAC’s rigorous global standards of accreditation, which include an assessment of each program’s objectives and outcomes, faculty and student evaluations, onsite and online resources, annual self-evaluation, and proof of continuous improvements in the area of project management education. Over 135 project management degree programs in twenty-two countries around the world are accredited by GAC. GAC accreditation ensures the quality of academic degree programs and their graduates in order to meet the standards of the rapidly growing field of project management.

Granite State College’s online M.S. in Project Management and Graduate Certificate in Project Management are designed to prepare working adults in New Hampshire and beyond with the skills needed to strategically deliver business value, regardless of industry or mission. These practice-oriented programs are ideal for managers who want to enhance their ability to integrate complex projects, motivate people, and achieve cost-effective results. The college’s project management faculty share the skills, knowledge, and techniques they have cultivated throughout their careers.
