Course content


Our MSc Project Management course will help you gain the administrative, organisational and creative skills you’ll need to become one of tomorrow’s leading managers.

The course will encourage creative thinking, and the development of leadership and management skills through teamwork, discussion and peer review. You’ll develop new skills to an advanced level, becoming a highly-skilled manager capable of administering major projects within and across different organisations.

In addition to further academic research opportunities, career prospects are expected to keep pace with the rapid advances in management methods and intelligent based technologies, hence, there is expected to be continuing demand for competent, versatile postgraduates who can design and implement innovative solutions for industry.

We will help you to work towards your PRINCE2 (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) Foundation qualification, with tuition, exam practice and preparation. The PRINCE 2 qualification is widely recognised and used in the private sector both in the UK and internationally, and it will increase your employment prospects and help you do your job more effectively.
