Project Management Applications is the capstone course for the project management core curriculum—reinforcing and synthesizing the spectrum of project management principles. Students hone their project management skills by working in teams to complete an extensive, realistic, week-long project case study. As the case study progresses through the life cycle, each team member takes a turn at serving as the project manager—defining objectives, performing tasks, and producing deliverables critical to the project’s success.
