Columbia Basin College’s (CBC) Business division has gained a significant academic achievement of reaccreditation to the Bachelor of Applied Science in Project Management (BASPM) Degree from The Global Accreditation Center for Project Management Education Programs (GAC). This accreditation is effective for a five (5) year period, starting June 2022 through May 2027.

The GAC’s decision for CBC affirms that the BASPM Program prepares students to meet the needs of businesses and government organizations for qualified professionals working in the rapidly-growing and highly in-demand field of Project Management. Students of this program will be able to apply these project management concepts and skills in the workplace, volunteer organizations or life.

The GAC accreditation ensures the quality of academic degree programs and their graduates in order to meet the standards of the rapidly growing field of project management. Over 135 project management degree programs in twenty-two countries around the world are accredited by The GAC. 

Jeff Harris, an Assistant Professor of Project Management and the Project Management Program Coordinator at CBC states “We are extremely honored and delighted that the Global Accreditation Center has recognized our hard work and dedication to our students involved in the Bachelor of Applied Science Degree in Project Management program. At the end of the day, this is for our students and I want to give a special thanks to everyone involved in helping get us reaccredited.
