Course content

Open to graduates holding degrees in any subject, this course assumes no prior knowledge of project management. The course also includes two units accredited by the Association for Project Management (APM).

Project management skills are in demand in almost every sector and increasingly they are an essential requirement for many different job roles. The programme is suitable for professionals and graduates who are looking to develop their project management skills as well as project management specialists who want a recognised qualification that supports the experience they have gained in employment.

This exceptionally practical course addresses the key factors that underpin the successful delivery of projects. Your studies will cover how to manage the technical, cultural, political and financial aspects of a project and the tools and techniques available to you. People are a crucial part of any project’s success and you will consider how to adeptly manage challenges such as power disputes between colleagues, skills development issues and maintaining motivational levels for long-term projects.

Through case studies and scenario-based exercises, you also look at how professionals in different sectors manage multiple projects and multi-task across teams. The programme incorporates a virtual, computer-based experience for project management learning and an innovative syllabus on the challenging issue of sustainability in project management.

During your studies, you will have the opportunity to participate in:

  • Industry visits to real companies
  • Short term internships with local employers
  • Live business projects for real clients*
  • A live consultancy project for your final dissertation*
