The Bangalore Chapter of the Project Management Institute (PMI) was founded in 1998, as an autonomous, non-profit, membership association dedicated to the science of project Management.


The objectives of the Chapter supplement the purposes of PMI as set forth in the PMI by-laws.

  • The Chapter objectives are to encourage and facilitate education, certification and professionalism in Project Management and to provide a forum for discussion and examination of problems, solutions, applications, and ideas related to the management of projects and to foster communication between public and private sectors regarding project management, and to disseminate within the primary area of operation of the Chapter information regarding developments in project management
  • Chapter membership puts you in contact with a local “network of expertise” and ongoing opportunities for face-to-face contact with peers from a wide variety of organizations and industries. PMI’s support of members on a local level continues to expand.
  • Chapters advance the mission and objectives of PMI by promoting professional standards and practices. Ongoing professional development is a key benefit to membership and is supported at the chapter level through activities, meetings, and educational programs
