Course content

This course builds on the University of Westminster’s already strong reputation, demonstrable expertise and relationships within the area of project management and has been designed to allow you to undertake a deep examination of organisational issues without leaving your current employment.

With emphasis on both strategic thinking and leadership in major project and programme management, it offers a balance between theory and practice. This is further augmented by the peer-to-peer learning opportunities that arise from the expected professional project management experience within the student cohort. Successful completion should enhance your career prospects either within your current organisations or in other national and international organisations where programme management is an established function.

The Major Project and Programme Management MSc will enhance your knowledge and skills as a leader capable of managing major projects and programmes in international, complex strategic contexts. You will develop your ability to critically analyse and manage risks in the context of major projects and programmes using appropriate tools and methods. Professional and communication skills development is also part of this course and you will explore and familiarise yourself with the codes of practice as expected by the leading project management professional bodies.
