Development Project Management Institute
What is Development Project Management?
Development is the process of finding creative solutions to chronic problems of hunger, poverty, disease, joblessness, and powerlessness. Our DPMI program focuses on creating programs, facilitating stakeholder engagement, and strategic partnering to meet current development challenges. Learn more about our curriculum.
We host our intensive DPMI training every January in Monterey, California and Kigali, Rwanda and every May/June in Monterey and Washington, D.C.
New for 2014, the DPMI Rwanda training will be hosted by Partners in Health (PIH), a NGO co-founded by Nobel Peace Prize nominee and famous author, Paul Farmer. Participants will complete a client project for PIH during the training.
Sponsored by our Master of Public Administration (MPA) program, DPMI is open to graduate students, current practitioners, career-changers, and a limited number of outstanding undergraduates.
