Course content

"Contribute effectively to the development and management of both small and large scale projects and programmes."
Our MSc in Programme and Project Management is designed for those who wish to move into project management, either in their current technical and business field, or into a new field of expertise.
Participants on this course can have a very wide range of academic and work backgrounds. It is suitable for those with work experience as well as those with little or no background in business.
We will provide you with...
  • The methodologies, tools, principles and philosophies of successful project management.
  • You will learn about human resource management in projects and programmes as well as risk management and change management. You will also develop a methodical approach to the management of the financial aspects of projects and programmes.

Course structure:

The course is modular - each student takes a combination of core and elective modules. 9 modules are studied and assessed in total. Modules consist of nominally 40 hours directed tuition in the form of lectures, seminars, group work, presentations, case studies and e-learning. This is covered in a full-immersion, intensive week. Modules are assessed by Post Module Assignment.



The taught modules account for 50% of the Master's degree. A major individual research project, submitted in the form of a dissertation accounts for the other 50%. An oral examination is held upon completion.

The core modules for this MSc are:

  • Financial Analysis & Control Systems
  • Project Planning, Management & Control
  • Organisations, People & Performance
  • International Joint Ventures
  • Management of Change
  • Managing the Multi-Project / Programme environment
  • Programme and Project Strategy

  • e-Customer Relationship Management
  • Global Business Environment
  • Leadership
  • Information Systems Management
  • Product Design & Development Management

Project


The project is worth 50% of the final grade and supports you in developing your personal research skills. Work on your project runs concurrently with your module work.

You are expected to devote an appropriate portion of your time and intellectual effort to the project during the course i.e. approximately 900 hours or 6 months study.


For Programme and Project Management the project can be related to projects in a number of different industrial sectors and can address many different aspects of project or programme management.

After You Graduate


Graduates can expect to be employed in service industries, information technology, engineering or any other business area needing project management skills
