  • Welcome from the Dean

    Welcome to Project Management at Colorado Technical University!

    CTU has a rich history with the Project Management Institute (PMI) and was one of the first Universities in the nation to earn GAC accreditation from the Global Accreditation Center for Project Management Education Programs at PMI. In doing so the GAC Board recognizes the commitment to project management educational excellence that has been demonstrated by Colorado Technical University throughout the GAC Accreditation process. Students that earn a project management degree from the University can be assured that their education meets high quality standards set by PMI for preparing students for success in project management careers.

    We offer a number of Project Management degree options for students. We have both undergraduate and graduate degrees in project management. Students have the option to take their courses online, on campus or as hybrid (in-class and online). Please review the degree program descriptions for more information.
