    Annual Project Management Student Competition, April 25, 2020

    January 15, 2020

    On April 21, 2018, The University of Scranton hosted the first Intercollegiate “Project Management Game Tournament” in the U.S. at the direction of Dr. Andrew Berger, Physics and Electrical Engineering department chair.

    The tournament is based upon a rigorous competition using an online project management simulation program. Student teams from the University, Penn State University, Muhlenberg College, and Kings College participated. The University subsequently incorporated the very same simulation learning tool, called SimulTrain®, into an engineering class taught by Dr. Robert Spalletta. Scranton hosted the 2nd Tournament on April 13, 2019, and, this time, ended up with the winning team. Both events were sponsored and conducted by Merit Career Development, based in Philadelphia, and supported by the Project Management Institute (PMI) Keystone Chapter. Muhlenberg had, and subsequently, Penn State and Harrisburg University of Science & Technology have, also incorporated SimulTrain® in their curricula. T

    The 3rd annual Tournament is scheduled on April 25, 2020, and again will be hosted by The University of Scranton.
