Stanford Advanced Project Management

 Stanford Advanced Project Management

Since 1999, the Stanford Advanced Project Management program has been a high-quality leadership and management professional education program for project managers around the world. The program blended academic theory with proven project management techniques from leading companies to provide crucial insights and practical tools for managing projects, portfolios and complex systems.

The program was created by Stanford Professor Raymond Levitt and was extended as a partnership of the Stanford Center for Professional Development and IPS Learning. Across the 15 years the program was delivered, more than 8,000 professionals from across the world completed the program.

Participants in the program were primarily project managers who manage all sizes of projects and initiatives, with a minimum of a bachelor’s degree and three to five years of experience managing projects.

The core courses of the program focused on project management. Participants could customize their learning experience by focusing their electives in execution, strategy, leadership, innovation or decision-making. Courses were taught by Stanford faculty and leading industry experts and were delivered online, at work and at Stanford.

Upon successfully completing three required courses and three elective courses, a participant received the credential of Stanford Certified Project Manager (SCPM). 

As of April 25, 2017, the Stanford Advanced Project Management program ended.
