MMSL 6750 - Foundations in Project Management♦


(4 sem. cr.) Students are introduced to the art and science of project management as applied to different types of project situations. They learn about the tools, techniques, and methodologies used to lead a project successfully throughout the project life cycle. They analyze the role of the project manager as an integral administrator overseeing the execution, progress, and interaction of all parties involved. They explore the function of the project management office (PMO), project organizations, team building, project selection, and portfolio management. Exploring context through real-world problems, students learn how managers employ the scope of work, work definition, scheduling, risk management, control, and close out throughout the course of a project. In addition, students learn how project managers use requests for proposals (RFPs), proposals, and contracts to define a project clearly and safeguard their company. 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 available in this software. Students in this course are required to use Microsoft Windows XP or Server 2003 or later. Since 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.
