Our in-house classes are drawing to a close, but not before students have taken part in a highly-useful course on Project Management.

News from Oct 02, 2015

Students from the Center for Global Politics have taken part in yet another scintillating module as part of our week of in-house classes. Yesterday, students from the CGP’s International Relations Online master’s program worked through our module on Project Management. This module, headed by Christina Sieber, teaches students how best to plan business and political projects, implementing in-depth analysis and best-practices in order to achieve success.

With our IRO students coming from a diverse range of nations and cultural backgrounds, the lessons from this course are sure to be useful in their future endeavors. One of the main takeaways from this module is a study of intercultural communication and management differences and how this can be understood and then put to use to ensure project success.

CGP’s in-house classes provide our online students with a unique opportunity to meet together and learn face-to-face over the course of a week. Such classes give students the benefits of on-campus learning, including student/teacher engagement, and connection building, before allowing students to return to their more accessible online International Relations studies.

Sadly, however, all good things must come to an end, with today marking the final day of our in-house class period, followed by a graduation ceremony this evening. Nonetheless, this was a highly enjoyable time for everybody, and students leave armed which a whole new set of knowledge to put to use into the future.
