MGMT 221 Project Management

Regardless of someone's role in business, education, health care, government, or any other sector, being able to manage projects successfully is a critical skill. A project is a unique set of activities meant to produce a defined outcome within an established period using a specific allocation of resources. This course provides an overview of concepts, tools, and techniques for planning, directing and controlling projects. It takes a multidisciplinary approach that comprises the quantitative analysis required to meet the technical, budget, and time constraints of projects as well as the behavioral and organizational factors critical to their successful completion. Students use case analysis and experiential exercises to supplement the coursework.
