Oct. 3, 2011, 2:01 a.m.

Stanford Advanced Project Management (APM), a division of the University’s Center for Professional Development, launched a blended curriculum for product management in India. The curriculum will be rolled out in December.

Stanford APM currently provides certificates in strategic execution for individuals and companies. The India curriculum will use a variety of methods–among them instructor-led sessions, online courses, live virtual sessions and end-of-program evaluations–and will award them with a credential of Stanford Certified Project Manager to participants upon completion.

The University is partnering with Straxium Corporation, which already has offices in India, to host on-site lectures and interact with students.

“Stanford is pleased to offer this program to India,” said Ray Levitt, professor of civil and environmental engineering and the academic director of APM, in a statement to MarketWatch. “This is an outstanding opportunity for professionals to get access to advanced education in the important disciplines of executing strategy, managing complex programs, leading change efforts and improving organization performance.”
