According to a recent survey from the Project Management Institute (PMI), the 2013 Project Management Salary Survey, the project management profession has experienced continued growth and remains a strong career choice for many, reports the Financial Post. This is the eighth edition of the survey, and is based on self-reported information on salaries for over 36,000 project management practitioners.
The survey reflect global trends, measuring information across 33 countries, and the highest salaries come from Australia, Switzerland, the USA, the Netherlands, Germany, Canada, New Zealand, Belgium, Sweden and the UK.
