Months of entry
Project management is crucial in all business fields, from the financial sector and information technology to healthcare and public services. With more organisations defining their activities as projects, the demand for well qualified project managers is growing.
This course has been designed to meet the increasing demand for effective project management across all industries and sectors. The course provides an emphasis on equipping students with skills and expertise to both plan and practice in project management in global business and social environments and emerging trends influencing project management such as virtual and hybrid work.
It provides a career entry, or further development, in the discipline of Project Management, beyond its traditional confines of engineering and construction, as applicable to enterprise management theory and practice. A central emphasis of the programme is a focus on responsible project management (RPM), to assist students to understand how project management can impact and improve society.
We want to ensure you have the best learning experience possible and a supportive and nurturing learning community. That’s why we’re introducing a new block model for delivering the majority of our courses, known as Education 2030. This means a more simplified timetable where you will study one subject at a time instead of several at once. You will have more time to engage with your learning and get to know the teaching team and course mates. You will receive faster feedback through more regular assessment, and have a better study-life balance to enjoy other important aspects of university life.
- This course considers emerging trends within Project Management such as flexible and virtual project teams to provide you with the most up to date knowledge.
- The Project Management Futures: Emerging Trends and Professional Frameworks module will give you the opportunity to enhance your understanding of the profession by engaging with professional project management bodies and the DMU Careers team as well as develop your personal SWOT analysis for career realisation.
- Benefit from Education 2030, where a simplified ‘block learning’ timetable means you will study one subject at a time and have more time to engage with your learning, receive faster feedback and enjoy a better study-life balance.
