PMP academic credentials question

ZyngaZynga Posts: 3Registered Users ■□□□□□□□□□
Hello,I am doing the application process. I have completed my 4 years of bachelors degree in computer science and engineering and I am currently doing my MBA in project management. I have completed my 35 hours of project management education in MBA. So, for attained education should I include my Bachelors degree or MBA (still continuing, not completed)?Thanks in advance!

    From what I understand you can only count completed studies, in your case your bachelor

    Thanks a lot gabypr!

    I can still add my completed 35 hours of project management education in MBA, right? And in that case, is there a more chance to have my application audited as my project management education hours is different than my attained education?

    gabypr or if anyone else has been in this situation please share your experiences or what you think should be right.

    Many thanks!

    I think audits are random.
    i just got my capm application approved within seconds of applying. I have voucher approval number to take terr within seconds. I could still be audited.
    i would say just make sure you are factual and accurate on application. Get you documentation ready in case you are audited.

    i would add any education and pm experience. Make sure on pm projects you can have someone preferably your boss validate your work experience.

    I was approved within seconds as well.

    I would do the PM Prepcast for the 35 contact hours and the PM Exam Simulator to prep for the exam.
