MSPM in the KNOW: May 15, 2018

Top 3 for 15 May 2018:  

1- Capstone Residency Week. We welcome MSPM students enrolled in the distance section of the DNSC 6269 PM Application/Capstone (DE) for the residency week. Capstone is the culmination of students’ academic experience in the MSPM program. Students integrate all they learned from day one in the program and demonstrate their ability to tackle complex projects through intensive presentations of their capstone projects. Previous students have produced handbooks for managing renewable energy ventures, Mars project, UN-assisted elections, and the like for their capstone. All the best to each one of you as you make the final push for your Capstone presentations! 

2- Final reminder for graduating students, the 2018 GWSB Doctoral and Masters Celebration is scheduled on Friday, 18 May. The University commencement at the National Mall is scheduled on Sunday, 20 May. Check out GWSB schedule and University commencement website for full details on the schedule. Graduating students need to wear graduation regalia during both celebrations. Check out regalia information here. Tickets are required for your guests during both ceremonies.
