MSPM in the KNOW: August 29, 2017

Top 3 for 29 August 2017:

1-  Welcome back returning students and welcome to GW for our new MSPM students!  I hope you all had a relaxing summer and are ready to begin the fall semester. This is an exciting time to be in the program as GWSB has launched several graduate certificate programs that you may combine with your masters, effective Fall 2017.

Get to know the incoming Fall 2017 class via the latest Bio Book.  Interested in learning about current students in the program?  You can view previous Bio Books under the Resources tab at

2-  Confirm your Fall 2017 schedule by logging into GWeb.  Look up your class schedule via the Student Records & Registration Menu under Student Schedule by Date and Time.  Blackboard is not the place to go to confirm your registration. Remember that Blackboard portal will not be available until your instructor turns it on. Blackboard for DNSC 6261 Intro to Project Management and DNSC 6269 Project Management Application (Capstone) will be available on the first day of the class. Blackboard portal for DNSC 6247 Organization Management and Leadership for campus students will likely be open on first day of class as well. Contact your course instructor if you are unable to view Blackboard on first day of class.

3-  Fall 2017 Blackboard Collaborate Session Reminder. The Blackboard Collaborate Session schedule for Fall 2017 is posted on the blog. Collaborate sessions are 60-minute virtual sessions designed for the online and campus students to engage with their professors on a weekly basis. It is highly recommended for all MSPM students. Joining the Blackboard Collaborate sessions gives student an opportunity to ask questions related to previous lecture, readings, assignments or logistics of the class. Check out schedule via this link. Note that instructor may change the schedule at any time. Students will be notified by instructor if changes occur.
