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.
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 Curriculum Guide (Fall 2009 to present)
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 DegreeMAP. DegreeMAP, 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.
