MSPM: In the Know, March 17, 2015

Top 3 for 17 Mar

Fall Registration Opens Monday, 23 Mar
Registration for the fall 2015 semester opens on Monday, 23 Mar. Review the Schedule of Classes for course offerings. Have you confirmed your courses per the plan in DegreeMAP? If you are uncertain on which courses to register in, schedule an advisement session via www.meetme.so/gwmspm.

Information on the fall DNSC electives is available on the blog at www.gwprojectmanagement.org. We will offer two 1.5 credit electives and one 3 credit elective in the fall, on campus and online sections available.
• Summer 2015 DNSC Electives
The MSPM program is not offering project management-specific electives in summer 2015, only core courses. The Department of Decision Sciences (DNSC), though, is offering several electives from their business analytics program that may be of interest:
  • DNSC 6290.10 Visualization for Analytics, 1.5 credits, on campus only, Dr. Grover (suneel@gwu.edu)
  • DNSC 6290.11 Business Process Analytics, 1.5 credits, on campus only (hope to offer online section), Dr. Jain (jain@gwu.edu)
  • DNSC 6290.20 Big Data, 1.5 credits, on campus only, instructor TBD
  • DNSC 6290.ON Social Network Analysis for Managers, 3 credits, online only, Dr. Kanungo (kanungo@gwu.edu)

Academic Probation
Although the terms of academic probation are outlined in detail during the new student orientation, a refresher mid-semester is always helpful. As always, if you have specific questions or concerns about your academic progress, schedule an advisement session with your advisor, that’s Cambria, to discuss in detail.

The University Bulletin provides details on the terms of academic probation at GWSB. A student whose GPA falls below 3.0 at any point after completing 9 credit hours will be placed on probation. You will receive a notice from the program when this occurs.

At the graduate level, students may earn grades of A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, or F. Grades of A through C- are considered passing grades. A grade of F indicates a failure in the course. Students who receive a grade of F are required to present cause, for consideration by the program director, as to why continued study should be permitted. Grades of F remain a part of your permanent record and are calculated into your GPA.

Spring 2015 Textbook List
The spring 2015 textbook list for MSPM courses is now available on the blog at www.gwprojectmanagement.org.• Spring Courses on Blackboard
Courses will likely not appear on Blackboard until the week of 12 Jan. Once the professor opens the course on Blackboard, that is when you’ll have access.

If you need to confirm your spring course registrations, do so in GWeb, not Blackboard.
Fall 2014 courses will be removed from Blackboard shortly. If you need to download materials from those courses, do so immediately. Once the course is removed, you will no longer have access.

As a reminder, graduate students at GW may earn the following grades: A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, and F. Grades A through C- are considered passing grades. Only a grade of F is a failure.

Please also remember that graduate students are required to maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA. If your GPA drops below a 3.0 after the completion of 9 credit hours, you will be placed on academic probation. I invite all students to review the GW and GWSB policies and regulations on this matter via the University Bulletin.
