An innovative project in project management education
Early in 1983, PMI's Southern Alberta Chapter began looking for opportunities to sponsor project management training programs. Its efforts led it to the University of Calgary, where the chapter worked closely with university officials to develop a project management master's program as a special area of study within one of the university's three graduate degree programs--engineering, environmental design (architecture), and business administration. This article overviews this program, outlining its basic concepts and criteria and explaining its program scope and content in relation to its core and elective subjects. It details the seven core subjects and describes the program's organizational structure.
