UPYE (International Project Management Institute) was established in 2010 in order to extend the Project Management knowledge in Turkey. As an NGO and a non-profit organization UPYE’s vision is to be an internationally recognized Turkish organization which shapes the future of project management globally.
UPYE was established by 10 co-founders with background and expertise from different industries which include construction, real estate, information technology, energy, marketing and nanotechnology, and currently it has more than 300 online professional and student members.
One of the major points that distinguish UPYE from other similar organizations is that the solution and event partners of UPYE are universities. UPYE completed many seminars and organizations in the last 5 years and Bogazici University was the host and the major supporter of those events. In addition, Ozyegin University Alumni Assosication was another university establishment that organized an important together event with UPYE about real estate industry in Turkey in 2014.
“Project Management from Different Perspectives”, “Construction Cost Management”, “Integration and Communication Management in Construction Industry”, “Institutionalization and Human Resources Management in Construction Industry”, “The Past, Today and Future of Real Estate Industry in Turkey” and “Innovation in Construction Industry” were some of the major events that UPYE successfully completed.
We reccommend all construction and real estate professionals, as well as all other project management related disciplines, to be online member of UPYE and join the group at linkedin.
