Project Management for Business
Project Management is a fast growing area of business. Recent developments into project management has created the need for an undergraduate course that teaches how projects are to be managed. This would resemble a similiar course that is offered at the graduate level.
We are using an existing course number, MGSC 498, as it is an old course that is not taught anymore. We did not create a new course number as we are running out of numbers to choose.
My IIT project management faculty reviewed the syllabus for your proposed new project management course (MGSC498) and concluded that it essentially duplicates our ITEC 560 course, which also teaches PMBOK and in combination with our ITEC 564 project management class qualifies students to sit for the PMP certification exam. However, we recognize your need for the course and do not have any objection since we are not be prepared to expand our course offerings to make our course available as a service course for business students. We considered suggesting a cross-listing, but since our course is at a 500-level, I think that would be problematic.
So you can take this as our letter of concurrence for your MGSC 498 Course proposal.

Please work on this some more.
Your proposal is being returned for the following reason(s):
• We are requesting that you obtain a letter of concurrence from the Integrated Information Technology Department due to the possible overlap in content coverage (they offer a Project Managment Course).
• This should likely be a new course, not a repurposed course
• How are absences reflected in the grade?
If the above concerns are addressed, and the proposal reaches the Curricula and Courses Committee by noon on October 19th, it will be approved and included in those courses being recommended to the Faculty Senate for the upcoming Faculty Senate meeting. If the committee receives it after that date, it will be considered during the next Curricula and Courses review cycle. It can still make it into the 2019 Bulletin if I receive a corrected proposal by November 9th.
Please contact me if you have questions (email@example.com).

This proposal should be resumbitted as a New Course Proposal since this is a completely new course. You can still use the MGSC 498 course number since it hasn't been taught in 10 years.
