Teaching Portfolio Management: Meisterplan at Boston University

2 min read

Boston University, a top 100 University globally according to Times Higher Education, uses Meisterplan to teach project portfolio management. Richard Maltzman, a Master Lecturer in Administrative Sciences says that “Meisterplan is a great way for students to actively learn how to practice portfolio and project management using a case study of the fictional (but based on real life) company Terrier Health, with its innovative new products like compact MRI and Ultrasound systems for healthcare centers as well as wearable tech.”

During Richard Maltzman’s class each student receives an individual license to the tool to solve various problems using Meisterplan. In this way, Boston University relies on Meisterplan to teach students how to create managerial reports and executive presentations through the software’s functionality. Each team of students resource issues, and dependencies between milestones are resolved by Meisterplan’s ability to view multiple projects at the same time and drag-and-drop interface. These features help students develop the skills they need to become efficient and effective portfolio managers.
