College of Business Students Complete Project Management Certification Exam Preparation Course

College of Business students awarded CAPM certificates

Four HPU College of Business students, Nam Nguyen, Kelsey Haas, Talia Abraham and Aleksander Kjaerstad (MBA ’18), received Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) Institute exam preparation certificates, completing 24-hours of classroom work on March 3. The CAPM is a project management certification from the Project Management Institute (PMI).


The six-week exam preparation workshop was an activity of the HPU Project Management Club and was co-sponsored by the HPU College of Business and the PMI Honolulu Chapter. The course was conducted by Larry Rowland Ed.D., PMP, associate professor of information systems and the college relations director for the PMI Honolulu Chapter, and Abraham assisted. The workshop attracted other students and local professionals, but only Nguyen, Haas, Abraham, and Kjaerstad completed the course. The course fees were dedicated to a fundraiser sending Nguyen to the PMI Region 7 Student Leadership Conference in San Francisco.
