MSPM Handbook
The MSPM program recently published a student handbook. The handbook serves as a resource to students, outlining program policies and procedures, and reminding all students of the policies and procedures of the George Washington University and the GW School of Business. As a reminder, all students are responsible for adhering to all policies and procedures, including those published in the University Bulletin, the School of Business Bulletin, and the MSPM Student Handbook.
