In this 2-credit introductory course, students will develop an understanding of the concepts and principles associated with the Theory of Constraints and Critical Chain thinking. We will explore the proposition that project managers should focus on those activities that are resource-constrained as opposed to the project's critical path when monitoring project progress. We will analyze case studies that test and extend these ideas in real-world scenarios. Through the review of these case studies, students will develop an understanding of the principles associated with the theory of constraints, critical chain approaches, and how they might be used within project management.

Additional Course Details: 

In the 21st century, migration patterns in the Americas have changed dramatically. Historically, the decision to migrate tended to rest heavily on economic factors, and the United States typically registered the largest number of migrants from countries like Mexico. Over the past 20 years, these patterns have changed. Migration from Central American countries has increased dramatically, driven primarily by fear of crime and gang violence. The numbers of women, families, and unaccompanied children making the dangerous journey north have also risen sharply and created challenges for U.S. immigration policy.

This course examines migration trends over the past 30 years. Students will study the ways in which crime and violence, particularly at the hands of organized criminal groups, have shaped the politics, economies, and societies of many Latin American countries. Students will analyze how crime and violence have shaped migration trends and assess the ability of U.S. policy to respond to changing migration patterns in the hemisphere.
