The MPM programme at Reykjavik University has several important links to the international project management community. In recent years it has contributed to advancing the field through active participation at the International Project Management Association Annual Meeting Conferences. Each year students from our small programme have presented up to seven research papers at the conference.

The programme has developed by being both scrutinised through formal evaluation and critically advised by scholars from Stanford University, Sloan School of Management at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Heriot-Watt Edinburgh Business School, as well as by leading practitioners in the field of project, portfolio and programme management.

In the search for future trends in the field, we have also closely followed developments at the annual IPMA expert seminars in Zurich. This has provided us with insights from practitioners, consultants and leading academics.

We benchmark our programme annually against the standards of the international project management community. These standards are the ICB3 standards of the International Project Management Association (IPMA), the standards of the Project Management Book of Knowledge (PMBOK) of the Project Management Institute (PMI), the guidelines of the Association for Project Management (APM), and the ISO 21500 Guidance on Project Management published by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).

The directors of our programme have been internationally recognised for their contribution to the field of project ethics and integrated decision making through the MPM programme "Project Management for Humanity" which is apart of the masters studies.
