PMI Bulgaria Chapter implemented the content of PMI Project Management Ready™ for students of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration at Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski"

PMI and FEBA successful partnership
 
Another successful partnership strengthened the leadership position of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration (FEBA) at Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski" in its synergy with business. PMI Bulgaria Chapter implemented the content of PMI Project Management Ready™ for students of the faculty. During the past winter semester, the certification program was introduced in an elective course for the master's degree programs of the faculty, and currently the teams are preparing its adaptation to the bachelor's degree programs.

PMI Bulgaria Chapter is integrating the PMI Project Management Ready™ content for the students at FEBA, Sofia University

   
As part of our partnership with the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration at Sofia University, we are proud to announce that the PMI Project Management Ready™ content will be integrated into the following courses for the students in the winter semester of the 2023/2024 academic year:
  • Bachelor degree: PMI project management standards (in English)
  • Master degree: PMI methodology for effective business project management

WHY
The PMI Project Management Ready™ certification is a new way for students and young professionals to immerse themselves in the project management industry and get involved with this passionate community of professionals.
It is an entry level project management certification that does not require any prior work experience in project management and/or may not have the minimal educational hours needed to take the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® exam.

GET INVOLVED WITH SOCIAL IMPACT
Integrating the PMI Project Management Ready™ learning resources, practice tests and certification exams into your intern/junior employees’ development plan will help young professionals gain a credential in project management and prove their skills, preparing them for their next step in career development.

👉 Buy one training for a young professional and fund one student of the FEBA at Sofia University to get certified.

Battle of the Titans: Industry Professionals vs. Artificial Intelligence

   
Gartner’s research indicates that change is coming soon, predicting that by 2030, 80% of project management tasks will be run by AI, powered by big data, machine learning (ML), and natural language processing.

At the monthly meeting of PMI Bulgaria Chapter co-organised with Women in Agile Bulgaria, we have touched upon the opportunity of including AI in your toolbox as project managers and agile coaches to help you select, define and implement projects more successfully.

During the panel discussion we have talked about:
  • what is AI and its value for project/product management today
  • can we trust AI tools or rather use them with pragmatic caution
  • will AI eventually replace human project/product managers and agile coaches
We've had loads of questions during the event, so we have written a summary page with AI tools (such as ChatGPT) that can be used as complementary tools for project management professionals - here is a copy you can get: AI in PM
