This practicum is designed for students to apply DPMI tools, frameworks, and concepts in the field.
The DPMI Development Practicum (DPMI Plus) is an academic and professional program in which MIIS students complete a 3-9 month internship in which they apply DPMI skills to benefit the host organization.
Deliverables involve the application of DPMI tools, frameworks and concepts. An explanatory narrative should clearly explain how each deliverable relates to the DPMI curriculum (i.e., which specific tools, concepts or frameworks are being applied).
Students also create a case study that examines some DPMI-related issues confronting the organization in which they are carrying out their professional activities. These issues may include project design; project monitoring; training; stakeholder participation; strategic partnering; social entrepreneurship; and innovation.
