Alexander Hartner, MBA
Specialized education is absolutely necessary to master today's challenges. With the support of my employer, I was attending the Professional MBA Project Management and, with our company motto ‘there is always room for improvement’ in mind, apply the knowledge acquired in my typical work day.
If you want to prepare for a project management certification, the module "Project Management Process and International Approaches" is an ideal basis. In this module you will gain an understanding and overview on selected project management standards. You will learn about differences and commonalities of international project management standards such as the International Competence Baseline (ICB) of the IPMA, Project Management Body of Knowledge of the PMI, and Projects in Controlled Environments (Prince2) of the AXELOS.
