BUS 352 - Project Management & Collaboration
This course provides a comprehensive understanding of project management. Fueled by trends such as fewer management layers, team-based work practices, and greater flexibility for knowledge workers, project management has grown into a vital tool for business success. Today, project management has transcended its roots in construction and manufacturing industries and continues to transform the service, financial, technology, and general management sectors. The skills and tools of Project Management are therefore part of an essential tool-kit for all business students and even more salient for students interested in careers in business consulting, technology consulting, operations management and new product/services development. The aim of this course is to provide students with the concepts and tools needed to better plan and manage projects. The course accomplishes this through a combination of readings, lectures, case discussions, and hands-on exercises with project management software (MS-PROJECT).
