Pioneers in Project Management

The Regis PLM-MBA aligns with the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) Talent Triangle. Combining business acumen, power skills and ways of working, PMI requires project managers to “cultivate effective decision-making and understand how projects align with the big picture of broader organizational strategy and global trends.”

Our PLM-MBA students and faculty are directly connected to the community. Professor Don Gier hosts the monthly roundtable professional development sessions of the regional PMI chapter (PMI Mile-Hi), and students can attend as part of their enrollment in the program. Regis also serves as the sponsor of the annual Women in Project Leadership and Management conference each fall and the annual PMI Mile-Hi Symposium each spring.

Additionally, our students complete a ‘live project’ where students work with a local business to help those businesses move forward. This provides a capstone experience for the PLM-MBA students, where they practice applying this work and graduating with work-ready and hirable skills.
