MSPM in the KNOW: October 3, 2017

Top 3 for 3 October 2017:

1- Thank you Angela Knight and Vugar Mammadov (GWPMA) for organizing a webinar, The Power of Communication, held on 29 September featuring Alan Zucker, CEO of Project Management Essentials. Event provided opportunity to engage distance learners in the MSPM program and gain practical skills in project communication.

Those who attended the webinar have the opportunity to be entered into the drawing for a chance to win sixth edition of PMBOK Guide released 6 September 2017 and a GWU MSPM t-shirt. Drawing will be held this week and winners will be notified via email!

2- Application for Spring 2018 Short Term Study Away Programs (STAPs) due 29 October. Thinking about studying abroad to fulfill your elective requirement in MSPM? Check out the G&EE website to learn more about STAPs and to access the online application. Short Term Study Away Programs are the best way for graduate students to exercise international mobility while at the GW School of Business. STAP programs are taught by faculty from GW or one of GWSB’s international partner universities. Program offerings are designed to expose graduate students to opportunities for global learning.
