2nd Series article on Project Management Education penned by Professors Ingason and Jonasson at the University of Reykjavik

21 March 2015 – Dallas, London, Sydney – Professors Helgi Thor Ingason and Haukur Ingi Jonasson at the University of Reykjavik in Iceland, active researchers in the field of project management education, have authored a second series article under the theme of “The Role of Academic Institutions in Educating and Training Project Managers”. Their second article, titled “Project Management Education: Once Upon a Time and Into the Future”, was published in the March edition of PM World Journal and added to the PM World Library this month.

According to the authors this month: “In our first article we promised to share with the readers of the PM World Journal our reflections and philosophy regarding project management education. That is, to share our thinking on project management as a professional discipline and on the role of educational institutions in promoting project management on a high academic level without compromising its practicality. In this second article we reflect on our own experience of designing and offering project management courses to undergraduate and graduate students… In short, we regard project management—education, research, training and method—as a key success factor for human undertaking in all fields and sectors of society; and we believe that the modern university should do so too.”
