PMINFO 15A1 Project Management Programs Online Information... tbd Autumn 2015
Project Management Programs Online Information Session (PMINFO)

 

Register

In today's dynamic business environment, project management professionals need to be nimble and wear many hats. Organizations are looking for leaders who can respond to changing business needs in innovative and creative ways. You must not only be technically adept, but able to respond quickly and strategically. Success is determined by your team's ability to get the job done despite the obstacles. "On time, on budget" are still critical buzzwords.

The University of Chicago Graham School offers a series of project management courses for all levels of project management professionals: stakeholders, team members, managers of small projects and managers of multi-million dollar global implementations. Although we use the Project Management Institute (PMI) framework to demonstrate the basic theory and allow students to earn Professional Development Units (PDUs®), our classes are practical and responsive forums designed to discuss current problems faced by real people.

Join us on Thursday, September 3 from 12-1 pm CT for a lunchtime online information session discussing our Project Management Certificate Programs. The online event will consist of a short presentation on the program curriculum and design, as well as Q&A.

Autumn Quarter classes start in late September, and are available for online registration now.

A link to the online meeting room will be provided in your registration confirmation email. If you have questions prior to the event, feel free to contact Kathy Locke at klocke1@uchicago.edu.

BPFFLS 15U3 First Friday Lecture: Herodotus and the Delphic... Cynthia Rutz Summer 2015
First Friday Lecture: Herodotus and the Delphic Oracle (BPFFLS)

Hosted by the Basic Program of Liberal Education for Adults, these free lectures take place at 12:15 pm the first Friday of every month except July at the Chicago Cultural Center.

For several millennia, the ancient world streamed to Apollo's sanctuary at Delphi to consult the oracle there on both personal business and matters of state.  The prophecies uttered by the priestess--known as the Pythia--are recounted in literature, philosophy and history.  The ancient historian Herodotus records many examples of pronouncements by the oracle and shows how and whether these prophecies were fulfilled.   But is he a skeptic or a true believer?  And what does his account tell us about how the oracle functioned in ancient society?

LAMUFO 15A1 Introduction to Opera: Lyric Opera’s Marriage of... John Gibbons Autumn 2015
Introduction to Opera: Lyric Opera’s Marriage of Figaro, La Cenerentola, and Wozzeck (LAMUFO)

Before movies, opera was the most emotional and most evolved art form, combining visceral thrills, cathartic release, and an ability to channel and examine that which society represses. Designed for opera newbies and lifelong opera lovers alike, this course explores the genre through the first three works of Lyric Opera’s season. We begin with Mozart’s Figaro, the greatest opera in the repertory: humane, spiritually and psychologically penetrating, erotic, wise, and alluring. We continue with Rossini’s Cinderella, a showcase for Rossini’s strength in comic opera. We conclude with Berg’s Wozzeck, the greatest modern opera: powerful, harrowing, and containing unparalleled emotional intensity.
