Project Managers Turn Strategy into Action

This is where leaders learn to manage complex projects and even trickier teams.

Whether you’re managing a $10,000 project or a billion-dollar program, it means coordinating, communicating, scheduling, and maintaining focus. You need to have the unique ability to do both: get into the nuts and bolts as well as step back to take a macro view.

The Master of Science in Project Management (MSPM) program at GW School of Business blends the study of advanced project management techniques with general management principles.

The innovative, ethics-infused curriculum balances real-world practice and academic theory, to develop the skills managers need to integrate complex projects, motivate people, and achieve cost-effective results.
