> Project Management
The Project Management Concentration is designed to provide students with both the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to succeed in project management, whether as project team members or project managers. The Project Management concentration includes advanced study and applications in the techniques and tools used to define, plan, organize, and manage projects. This course of study will include practical project execution and control, risk management, earned value, configuration management, budgeting, and project termination and close-out. The final course in the concentration will require the student to individually manage his/her own project, making project management decisions in an environment of risk and uncertainty. It will give the student a chance to actually use the tools and techniques studied in the previous three courses in the concentration in a true hands-on environment.
M.B.A. students must complete a minimum of 36 credit-hours.
To satisfy minimum degree requirements, all single concentrations require a minimum of 36 credit hours, and dual concentrations require a minimum of 48 credit hours. Students are responsible for not repeating courses waived, transferred, or previously taken.
