IPMA YOUNG CREW
Project Management Championship Regulation
The International Project Management Championship is a competition for university’s students consisting of 3 stages:
1) QUALIFICATION ROUND
• During the Qualification Round students’ teams are asked to take an online test. The test consists of 100 multiple choice questions that must be answered in 100 minutes. The knowledge level required is equal to the IPMA level D certification. The test must be completed at one attempt and can be accessed only from one computer.
• The international IPMC team communicates the results (percentage scores reached from each team) within maximum one week after the end of the round and directly to the Local PM of PMC.
The 6 teams reaching the highest score qualify for the National Final. Names of classified teams will be communicated and published on the local YC website and on the international YC website.
2) NATIONAL FINAL
The National Final is organized by the Local Young Crew Board with the support of the MA.
Each team admitted to the National Final must solve one real-life case study within 4 hours. The case study must be focused on project management and refer to the IPMA ICB4 content. Each team must prepare a presentation of its results and submit it to a jury which consists of PM professionals from the IPMA network.
Note: There can be specific rules applying to the National Final depending on the country.
3) INTERNATIONAL FINAL
The winning team of each national final will then participate in the Project Management Championship international final and compete with all other national winners. The final is a 2-day event hosted each year in a different country. The final winners will be the Champions of the PMC competition worldwide.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
The competition is aimed exclusively to university students.
