About Us

The Programme in Project Management (PPM) has been taught since 1997 with more than 200 intakes, with the content regularly updated to include the latest developments. The course leader is Prof Herman Steyn. As thousands of people in all sectors of business and government are benefiting from having done the PPM, it is well-known in the job market.

The Graduate School of Technology Management (GSTM) at the University of Pretoria is responsible for the academic content of the PPM and is the undisputed leader in Project Management education, training and research in Africa. The GSTM is a Registered Education Provider of the Project Management Institute (USA).

The PPM is recognised by ECSA, PMSA, SACPCMP, SACNASP and the PMI. The department responsible for the academic content has been a registered education provider and accredited training provider of the PMI (USA) since 2003. The PPM is, to a large extent, developed and presented by the same lecturers that present Africa’s only master’s programme in project management that is accredited by the Global Accreditation Centre (GAC) of the Project Management Institute (PMI).
