H. Warburton, the conference is sponsored by Metropolitan College, the International Project Management Association (IPMA®), and the Project Management Institute (PMI®).
“Can We Talk Rationally About the Big Dig Yet?” That’s the controversial question Boston.com staff writer Justine Hofherr poses in a January 5 editorial that draws on the first-hand knowledge of Associate Professor of Administrative Sciences Roger Warburton. For more on how learnings from this landmark project enriches MET’s project management curriculum, see “Digging the Big Dig” in the winter 2012 issue of Metropolitan.
Madrid, Spain: Six faculty from the Metropolitan College (MET) Department of Administrative Sciences travel to Madrid annually to lead three intensive business modules on campus at the Universidad CEU San Pablo. Part of a firmly established collaboration between the Administrative Sciences department, MET International, and CEU, the modules are attended by CEU business and advertising students who then travel to Boston University to complete MET courses in management, marketing, advertising, and finance. After successfully completing the three modules in Madrid and the full semester at BU, the CEU students receive an International Business Certificate (IBC) from MET.
