Course content

Designed for

PPM is designed for graduates who want to move into project management, either in their current technical and business field, or into a new field of expertise. Students on this course can have a very wide range of academic and professional backgrounds. Typically we receive graduates from civil and other engineering streams, architecture and design, IT, finance, accounting, business, sciences and social sciences.

What the course will provide

Programme and Project Management at Warwick will provide you with a broad set of skills which have wide application.

During the course of the year, you’ll gain practical experience through applied syndicate activities and current case studies, delivered by professionals in the field. You will develop a methodical approach to the management of financial aspects of projects and programmes and will learn about the strategic management of people in organisations and how this relates to the wider business strategy. You will learn the methodologies, tools, principles and philosophies to effectively contribute to the development and management of small and large scale projects, multiple projects and programmes.

Course structure and assessment

The curriculum is divided in nine taught modules (seven core modules, and two elective modules) and the project. After each taught module, you will complete a post-module assignment. Your project is worth 50% of your final grade and supports you in developing your personal research skills. Through your project you will have the opportunity to focus on a topic within an area of particular interest to you. This can be related to projects in a number of different industrial sectors and can address many different aspects of project and programme management.

Modules

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

In addition to the above seven core modules, two elective modules must be chosen from the full module list on our website.
