Open University gains corporate accreditationThe Open University has gained corporate accreditation for their in-house professional development programme for project management called portfolio office: building change capability.

The OU is the first organisation from the higher education sector to gain corporate accreditation, and represents a landmark for both the university and the APM.

Jess Annison, head of portfolio office said “It’s a bit of a clich, but it really is a journey and we’re part way through. It’s great to see many of the activities already showing value.”

The OU has also previously achieved academic accreditation for its M815 Project Management module. 

In his report, the assessor commented that “Commendable progress to professionalise the delivery of project, programme and portfolio management has been made within a relatively short time span by the OU.

“This is a strong application for accreditation, carefully crafted, with clear supporting evidence...plans for the development and enhancement of project and change management are impressive and are to be commended”.
