Revamping a Curriculum: GWU’s Modern, Comprehensive Project Management MS (in Two
Abstract: The evolution of GW’s Masters in Project Management is discussed, and its revamped, comprehensive curriculum, which balances numerical elements and human dynamics courses, is presented. The current and future project managers who take advantage of GW’s distance education — identical to campus — are also prepared for working in a virtual project environment. We conclude by discussing possible futures in PM education.
