All MSFS students must fulfill the MSFS Workshop requirement within their field of concentration. Designated courses which meet the workshop requirement are action-oriented and designed to replicate conditions students will encounter in the professional world. The core objective is to help students develop and practice leadership and problem-solving skills they will need in their future careers. Accordingly, courses designated as meeting the workshop requirement primarily focus on building the skills needed to manage organizations, resources, and stakeholder relationships effectively.
Courses meeting the workshop requirement could include role play, simulations, case studies or field work, such as short-term consulting engagements. Specific tools and skills might include policy briefings, speech-writing, memo-writing, oral presentation and messaging; negotiating; data analytics and decision modeling; budgeting and budget analysis; evaluation methods; and practical use of technology tools.
