MMSL 6751 - Project Management Skills for Managers


(4 sem. cr.) As organizations continue to grow in scope and size, so do their projects, requiring individuals with a unique and diverse set of management skills who are able to see a product through from conception to distribution. In this course, students delve deeper into the realm of project management to assess its impact on the business environment in a domestic and global context. Students examine the “soft” skills of project management as the keys to improving its practice. In the context of real-world problems, they assess research and engage in practical simulations to determine best practices of project management in today’s organizations. (Prerequisite(s): MMSL 6650.) 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, Server 2003, or later. Considering 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.
