The PMI Tampa Bay Chapter partners with local professional organizations who provide services to our chapter for the benefit of our members. The benefits from these partnerships vary by partner but they all contribute to enabling the chapter to enhance its services to the membership.
A major partner that has been providing an invaluable service over the past several years is DeVry University. They have provided their facility at the Tampa East Center location that enables the chapter to provide an alternative chapter meeting to the monthly dinner meeting held on the 3rd Monday of each month. For those who find it difficult to attend on Monday evenings the option to attend the presentation by the same speaker on the followng day is invaluable.
Consider looking into the educational programs provided by this partner. At DeVry University, you can choose from associate, bachelor's, and master's degree programs within five distinguished colleges—Business & Management, Engineering & Information Sciences, Health Sciences, Liberal Arts & Sciences, and Media Arts & Technology. Earn a degree in Accounting or Finance, and enter some of the fastest-growing fields in today's marketplace. Or turn your passion for video gaming into a profession by studying Game & Simulation Programming—one of the only degree programs of its kind in the country. No matter what path you take, you'll earn a degree that opens doors.
