This indicates that agile project management has already changed the theory and practice of project management, specifically in the management of IS/IT projects. While agile methodology was developed for IS/IT industry, the approach could equally be applied to some other types of projects. The focus of this course is on application of agile methodology to IS/IT project management. In this course we will address the principles, concepts, theories, procedures and methods related to Agile Project Management methodology.

Dear MSPM Students,
Here are the top things you need to know for February 18, 2020:


MSPM Students Visited a Brewing Company! 

This past weekend, MSPM students enrolled in the campus section of DNSC 6269 PM Application (Capstone) visited the Right Proper Brewing in Washington, D.C. and met with the owner, Leah Creston.  Students were there to learn the “how to process” in starting up a brewing company, which is this year’s project for graduating MSPM students. Leah Creston served as a resource to students in identifying processes to run a brewey/restaurant while students incorporated all these ideas into the making of their Handbook Project, one of the three requirements for their Capstone course. The final output will be presented in class at the end of this Spring semester. Way to go for these students as they complete their Capstone project! 


Join us online Sunday, February 23 from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. and enjoy networking and conversation with fellow GWSB students, faculty, staff and alumni from around the world.

INDUSTRY ROUNDTABLES

Join us Friday, February 7 from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. in the City View Room of the Elliott School of International Affairs to network and engage in roundtable discussion with prominet alumni and industry leaders from companies that have been historically most attractive to our students.

About the Round table Series
Round tables hosted by the GW School of Business are designed to provide students the chance to go deeper in discussion with alumni, members of the board of advisers, employers, and industry leaders beyond a simple networking/meet-and-greet event. It is a chance for both discussion leaders and students to learn about each other outside a classroom setting. We’ve seen several students obtain internships and jobs from discussion leaders at these events. Many have continued mentoring conversations long after the event is over.

The events consist of one hour of a happy hour-like informal networking reception, one hour of round table discussion, and one hour of plenary debrief and final networking. The attire for this event is full-business-dress. In the week leading up to the event, registered students are given discussion questions and are assigned to a particular discussion leader. Students are asked to research and reflect on the questions before the event and bring talking points to the event itself.

Dear MSPM Students,
Here are the top things you need to know for January 14, 2020: 

Welcome to Spring 2020!

Welcome back returning students and welcome to GW new students! The Spring 2020 is here. We hope everyone had a fabulous break and are off to a good start.  Looking forward to yet another exciting semester. 


Spring 2020 Tips and Reminders

As the new semester starts, here are a few tips and reminders for students: 

  • Confirm your schedule by logging into GWeb.  Look up your class schedule via the Student Records & Registration Menu under Student Schedule by Date and Time

  • If signed up as distance learner, you will see your schedule as “TBA” or “TBD”.  You may watch your lectures on Blackboard an hour or so later after campus lectures are over. Check out campus schedule via schedule of classes under Decision Sciences.

  • Check out Blackboard for all your course materials such as syllabus, textbooks, assignments and discussion board. Login with your email (without the @gwu.edu) and your password as if you are checking your email.

  • Not seeing courses on Blackboard yet? It is possible that your instructor has not made it live yet. Courses should be available on Blackboard no later than the first day of the class. Email your instructor with any questions regarding course materials.

  • Know your Blackboard Collaborate schedule. Collaborate sessions are 60-minute live sessions that are designed for the online and campus students to engage with their professors on a weekly basis. See schedule here

Thank you Nick Kendall and Yoandris Pavon Gonzalez! 

Special thanks to Nick Kendall and Yoandris Pavon Gonzalez for their time and efforts during the New Student Orientation held on January 11. Nick and Yoandris helped with the Q&A during the academic/student resources session. Nick is on his last year in MSPM, and is in the Dual MBA-MSPM program. Yoandris recently completed the Graduate Certificate in PM and is now moving to MSPM this semester. Both their insights had been valuable to the program and to our new students! Once again, thank you both for your continued support to the program. 


January 20 is MLK Day!
