Project Earned Value, Procurement, and Cost Management MGMNT X 443.17

This course introduces 3 essential project management core concepts–earned value management (EVM), cost management, and procurement (supplier relations)–to optimize the triple constraint. Students gain an understanding of theory and real-world applications that increase their ability to plan and manage project performance and cost. Topics include EVM metrics; strategies to effectively involve suppliers in projects, and finance fundamentals to develop and comply with project budgets and assure project financial goals. Journal articles and text materials augment course goals and objectives.
