PMP Salary Survey And Stats

PMP Salary

         

       As much as we all know the PMP certification worth, let’s take a look at the stats of the PMP Salary survey conducted by the PMI organization. A more detailed report can be found on the PMI.org website. In nearly all countries, median salary steadily increases with PMP tenure. Also because of the Program Management Improvement and Accountability Act (PMIAA), signed into law by President Obama on Dec. 14, 2016, many federal government project management jobs will require a PMP certification. 

The median annualized salary recorded in this survey, across all countries, roles and experience levels is $81,000 (USD).
Approximately 75% of respondents earned at least $53,689 (USD), and the upper 25% earned at least $110,000 (USD). However, as one would expect, median salary varied greatly depending on a number of key demographic factors, the greatest of which are the following:

  • Country of employment
  • Number of years of experience in project management
  • PMP® Certification Status
  • Position/role
  • Average size of projects managed, including average project budget and average project team size
