It is expected that the project will be conducted over two consecutive semesters and that the majority of students will start in Semester 1. Commencement in Semester 2 requires the permission of the course coordinator and School`s Director of Learning and Teaching and will only be allowed where there are good reasons for doing so. Students considering this option should discuss it with the course coordinator at least one semester before they intend to start.
Project Management Capstone Project B
6 P [30 cp of 2000 or 3000 level units of study] AND PMGT3850
