Master of Science in Project Management

"With so much business and project management experience, I was uncertain how much I would learn. My uncertainty was replaced by excitement. The program opened new vistas for me in every class from Intro to Capstone, from probabilistic scheduling to AHP for project portfolio selection, from decision sciences to finance to leadership to writing."
- Susan Bivins, MSPM Alumni, Four Seasons, MO
