Upon completion of this course, students will be able to: explain project management design, development, and deployment; describe project management tools, techniques, and skills; align critical resources for effective project implementation; discuss the implications, challenges, and opportunities of organizational dynamics in project management; identify and describe the key performance metrics for project success; and summarize how to manage project cost, quality, and deliver.


Project Management (BUS-390) guides students through fundamental project management concepts and behavioral skills needed to success-fully launch, lead, and realize benefits from projects in profit and nonprofit organizations. Successful project managers skillfully manage their resources, schedules, risks, and scope to produce a desired outcome. In this course, students explore project management with a practical, hands-on approach through case studies and class exercises. A key and often overlooked challenge for project managers is the ability to manage without influence—to gain the support of stakeholders and access to resources not directly under their control.
