Course content

Managing global projects in fields as diverse as marketing, operations and supply chains requires a variety of high-level management skills in order to manage projects effectively and efficiently across different cultures and societies.

MSc Global Project Management is aimed at students who may not have studied business at undergraduate level.

Project management is the discipline of organising resources to complete projects within defined time, cost and quality constraints, with acceptable levels of risk. Major global projects require professionals with integrated skills, who can operate in a variety of cultural and socio-economic settings around the world.

You explore topics including:

  • project management
  • programme management
  • supply chain management
  • operations management
  • management of international marketing projects
  • product development

This course uses innovative teaching methods, such as group work and applied projects, to develop the leadership, communication and problem solving skills necessary to successfully manage international projects. You also have the option to complete a comprehensive business plan instead of a dissertation.

You study at Essex Business School, at our Southend Campus. Students and staff come to us from all over the world, creating a classroom experience rich in diversity and working together to build a global understanding. After learning in this environment you should feel prepared to take on global projects alongside an equally global workforce in the future.
