New PM Masters at Washington University

Starting Fall Semester 2009, students at Washington University of St. Louis will be able to obtain a Masters Degree in Project Management.

Tom Browdy, Ph.D, director of masters of information management had this to say about the new program:

"Project management has become a challenge for industry over the past decade or so, and we've seen the need for a master's degree program for some time. Historically, most people who ended up managing projects were pushed into it. But there's more to project management than learning things on the fly. Our organizations live and die on projects now. This is a master's degree program that concentrates on how to plan, organize and execute a project as well as how to deal with people on a project."
