Project Management (3 credits)

Students in this course will learn how to manage client requests, the tasks that issue from them, and the staff and other resources that their organization has available in order to attain the desired goal of a project within a specified period of time. This course relies heavily on the definitions and principles found in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, which represents the best practices in the field.

This course explains the five key process groups in any project: initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, as well as closing. It also covers communication skills and delegation of work. Additionally, it covers setting priorities and expectations, controlling expenses and reporting results, and evaluating project success or failure. It also introduces some of the tools used in contemporary project management.
