Course content

As a result of being good at their role, many people face a reality of ultimately being asked to lead on a particular project. This means that they become accountable for delivering a specific product according to time, cost and quality objectives.

Today’s global businesses list project management skills as some of the most desirable when hiring new talent. Projects are ubiquitous nowadays, formalising the way in which companies organise and implement the constant improvements required to successfully operate in competitive markets and usually involving high risk and uncertainty.

In effect, any business change (e.g. new technology, product, culture, operational processes) has to be project managed as the current emphasis in business is on flexible, rapid response to customer demands.

Finally, we need to acknowledge the historical legacy of project management being evident practically everywhere in the world. Everything that was constructed, starting with the Egyptian pyramids through medieval cathedrals to skyscrapers and other prominent examples of contemporary infrastructure, was at some point a project.

Recognising the strategic importance of project management in today’s business environment, the Project Management MSc provides an opportunity to engage with the current fundamental theories and best practices in a systematic, critical and at the same time creative way.

The comprehensive yet exciting curriculum was informed by and designed to meet the expectations of contemporary global organisations. Irrespective of your current level of project management knowledge or experience, you will have the chance to gain more confidence to better plan complex projects, lead and inspire your team, manage difficult stakeholders and cope with the most unpleasant or unexpected risks.
