    Any successful project starts with a plan. This course provides students with a deep understanding of project planning. Projects are a series of tradeoffs between scope, cost, and time, so you’ll need to learn how to balance them in order to create a plan which is realistic and achievable.

    PM 301 - Project Execution, Monitoring & Control, Implementation & Closure

    In today’s fast paced work environment, no project proceeds from beginning to end without encountering unforeseen challenges, and the changing scope, priorities or context of a project may require various adjustments. Additionally, project implementation and closure requires conviction and trust in established processes and personnel. In either context, these are vital parts of a project’s success and are reflections of how future projects will be managed. This course covers project execution, monitoring / control, implementation / handover, DevOps, and project closure. This course is intended to finalize a student’s preparation for their Project Management Practicum and Internship.

    PM 400 - Advanced Project Management - Practicum

This course will also provide students with an overview of the product life-cycle, governance, and other topics to help contextualize project work.
