Dear MSPM Students,

I am excited to welcome everyone back to school this week. I encourage everyone to reacquaint themselves with their classmates, professors, and the academic technology for the program. A plethora of resources and information are available to you at my.gwu.edu, the Office of the Registrar website, and www.gwprojectmanagement.org.

The top 3 items you need to know this week:

Welcome to the Spring 2014 Class

Please join me in welcoming the spring 2014 incoming class of MSPM students. The diverse class of students hail from across the globe, including Azerbaijan, Ghana, and Saudi Arabia. The domestic students hail from DC to Los Angeles. The bio book for the new class will be posted shortly onto www.gwprojectmanagement.org.
