Global Certifications In Project Management


PMP and PRINCE2  certifications are two different project management frameworks. Both offer a body of knowledge and a proven approach for managing projects effectively. Picking one over the other is a decision that involves a number of factors. The ideal choice should be based on the industry or company you are aiming to build a career in  and the type of project you’re planning to lead or direct.

The Project Management Professional (PMP) is a globally acknowledged professional certification that validates a professional’s education and experience in project management. This coveted credential is offered by the reputed Project Management Institute to professionals who qualify in the PMP Exam conducted by the Project Management Institute (PMI).

 The “PRojects IN Controlled Environments” (PRINCE2) for short has become one of the most popular and widely used project management methodologies available today. Employed by both the public and private sectors, it has become the de-facto standard for project management. Prince2 is a project management methodology aimed at improving not only your project management skills but also your chances as a prospective employee. Nowadays many organizations look for individuals with Prince2 expertise as they are often required to control, organize and manage projects.

The PMP® certification is preferred mostly in North America and US dominated market. On the other hand PRINCE2  is majorly recognized in UK, Europe and Australia. However, they both have equal weightage in  Canada, Middle East and African continent.
