Project Management Academy® Ranks First for Education on Inc. Magazine's List of 500 Fastest-Growing U.S. Companies

       West Lafayette, IN - August 29, 2014 - Inc. Magazine recently ranked Project Management Academy® as the #1 fastest growing company in the Education sector, and third among Indiana-based companies. Overall PMA® ranked as the 136th fastest-growing private U.S. company from 2010 to 2013. During this time, PMA saw its revenue increase by 2,752%.

       "We are proud to be recognized among this elite group of businesses, and we thank our excellent employees and instructors for their outstanding efforts in helping achieve this honor," said John Smith, PMA's chief executive officer. "While we are very excited about our growth and success, we all still work very hard to find more innovative ways to serve our customers."

       Project Management Academy provides project management education courses, with a heavy emphasis on PMP® certification prep courses. Other popular PMA products include Agile and Lean Six Sigma Green Belt courses.

       Project Management Academy employs a distinctly customer-first approach to its business, by making commitments unmatched by competitors. For example, PMA guarantees firm course dates, regardless of attendance, while competitors often re-schedule courses until a minimum enrollment threshold is reached. PMA also provides a full pass guarantee and free post-class tutoring for its PMP training course, among other things.

       "Our growth rate is directly attributable to the level of trust and confidence we have gained from our customers, both individuals and businesses," said Michael Livingston, PMA's president. "Building trust starts with offering a first-rate training experience, but you can't lose sight of the human factor. People trust us to help advance their careers, so we promise to stand behind them every step of the way. We’ve therefore invested heavily in a team and infrastructure we believe is unmatched in our industry. Our goal is to exceed all expectations, from customer service to the actual trainings, tutoring, follow-up support, etc. We are thrilled to be growing so quickly, but we will always judge our success first and foremost on student satisfaction."

       Smith added, "Our focus on customer satisfaction has clearly paid off. Around 99% of our customers say they would refer us to a friend or colleague, and they do. Referrals have been a key contributor to our growth rate and will continue to be an asset moving forward."

       Project Management Academy’s growth is not limited to revenue. Indeed, PMA has expanded its courses from three geographic locations in 2010 to over 50 today. An Indiana corporation, PMA is headquartered in West Lafayette, Indiana.

       PMA will be recognized in the September issue of Inc. Magazine, which is available on newsstands from August 20th to November 30th. The ranking and supporting information can also be viewed online at
