This course introduces students to the theory and practice of managing projects. The student will be introduced to PMBOK (Project Management Body of Knowledge, from Project Management Institute).

Managing client expectations, developing a list of key milestones, assigning team responsibilities, tracking progress, and communicating progress are all topics examined. In addition to traditional project management tools such as PERT and GANTT charts, students will be introduced to project management software. Comprehensive cases and projects will be assigned and completed either individually or in collaboration with a student project team.
