Course Attribute

This course is replacing PMGT 6253 (but there was a significant revision in the course content and learning objectives and so, we attached a syllabus). IMPORTANTLY, it needs to now be numbered --- PMGT 6436 to align with the overall program re-numbering.

Note -- Along with submitting this new course proposal form with the new course number (PMGT 6436), I submitted an edited form with the old course number, which should eventually be deleted from the course offerings once the changes have been made.
