International Project Management – Class Cancelled!

DNSC 6290, International Project Management  (Spring 2012) has been cancelled. We are sorry for any inconvenience that this might cause and hope to be able to offer it at a later date!
For distance students, we have created a distance section of MBAD 6223, Operations Strategy (CRN 67679) during the 2nd module of the spring. The on-campus section is also available (CRN 64192 – MBAD 6223).
 Here is the course description for this 1.5 credit course: 
  Concepts and techniques related to manufacturing and service operations. Process mapping, capacity analysis, production control, quality management, and supply chains. Integration of operations with a firm’s overall business strategy as a powerful competitive weapon. 
A complete list of Decision Sciences courses for the spring can be found on the GW Schedule of Classes: http://my.gwu.edu/mod/pws/.

We conclude by discussing possible futures in PM education.

MSPM Curriculum Guides and Course Equivalencies

All MSPM students are working from one of two curriculum charts depending on when they started the program.  For students who began before the Fall 2009 semester, the curriculum prerequisite chart also includes a listing of course equivalencies.

MSPM Course Prerequisite Chart and Course Equivalency Chart (Spring 2009 and earlier)


The purpose of the former MSPM Program Statement was to help students plan their course of study and keep track of the courses they have completed.  Beginning in the fall 2012 semester, the program has implemented use of DegreeMAPDegreeMAP, accessed via the GWeb Information Systems site, is an online advising and degree auditing system which will display the requirements for the student’s program of study and apply the student’s individual academic history to those requirements.  For more information and instructions on how to access DegreeMAP, visit the Office of the Registrar site.
