Project Management and Team Collaboration

Course Code: PWRT 5504

Academic Year: 2017-2018

In this course, students learn skills such as time management, leadership styles, collaboration techniques and project management to help them become effective communications managers and leaders. Through a major collaborative project, such as a web site or communications campaign, students learn to work in teams, take on leadership roles and self-manage co-operatively to develop a project from start to finish. Through partnerships between the program and select non-profits, students donate their service to creating projects for these organizations, and in return, the sponsors offer guidance and mentorship, leading to potential internships.
