MSc in Project Management seeks to give you the skills and practical insights required to manage the full lifecycle of a project, from initiation to closing and evaluation. The globalised business and organisational environment is creating a growing need for project managers that can operate in a variety of cultural and socio-economic settings and are capable of handling the complexities that arise while working in an international context. The programme provides students with a systematic understanding of project management and a critical awareness of current problems together with new insights.
Project Management is a universally transferable skill that can be applied to any industry, with demand for Project Managers never wavering. In its simplest form project management is the discipline of organising and managing resources to deliver the required objectives. Our course will delve into the more advanced practices of project management.
The course boasts two distinctive features: Firstly, the focus of the course will be on what is really needed for success in today’s constantly changing business environment: students will also study research; leadership; law; change management and the global commercial marketplace. Secondly, the emphasis will be on the practical rather than the overtly theoretical and students will study, analyse and develop key tactical skills through the course’s hands-on approach to learning.
During the master in International Project Management course, the students will gain understanding of how to deliver projects with all the valuable resource in mind, be it scope, time, cost or quality. You will learn about the core components of project management including; why the project is necessary and what the requirements to complete the project are, developing and implementing the project and managing the risks and issues that present themselves. We emphasise the practical rather than the theoretical encouraging students to study, analyse and develop key tactical skills through a hands-on approach to learning. In contrast to more traditional project management education, the programme focuses on providing our students with knowledge to work in an international environment.
