MGMT 6650 - Foundations in Project Management♦


(4 sem. cr.) This course introduces students to the art and science of project management as applied to different types of project situations. Topics such as project life-cycle management; project organizations and leadership; project team building; requests for proposal (RFPs), proposals, and contracts; techniques for project scope definition, work definition, estimating, scheduling, risk management, control, and closeout; the Project Management Organization; project management methodology; and project selection/portfolio management are covered. Students explore these concepts in the context of real-world problems. Note: There is a special technology requirement for this course requiring the use of Microsoft Project. The software will be provided in trial form, but there is not a Mac version of this software available. Students in this course are required to use Microsoft Windows, XP, or Server 2003 or later. Because Mac users may experience difficulty using the software, we recommend the following: (a) Mac users should be prepared to use a PC during this course or (b) Mac users should purchase the appropriate software or hardware to be able to replicate the Windows environment on their Mac.
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
