The dynamic and challenging world of business has encouraged the increasing use of project management across all business sectors. In turn, this has created a heightened demand for qualified project managers, not only in the traditional areas of engineering and technology but also into new fields of practice. These additional areas include health and wellbeing; environmental and community development programmes; education; archaeology; and many of the creative and key service industries (including tourism and event management); inspiring innovative forms of project and programme management.

Project Management at Winchester equips you with technical and interpersonal skills in both tactical and strategic approaches to portfolio, programme and project management. It also provides opportunities for you to acquire the attributes, skills and knowledge to work as effective and professional project managers to ensure you get the best out of your project teams. You discuss and debate ideas and practices, considering how they fit into your professional experience in the workplace.

You consider and develop practical approaches to project management, exploring and practicing traditional and contemporary approaches to the profession. Study core modules including Principles of Programme, Portfolio, and Project Management, Project Life Cycle Planning, Control and Reporting, Leadership in Organisations and Research Methods in Business. Then choose from the optional modules: Business Consulting, Enterprise and Small Business Management, and Sustainable Innovation Management. You also complete a final dissertation project.

The course develops your skills and knowledge for action in the workplace, and is useful for a wide variety of careers in the public, private and third sectors. It also provides a firm foundation for undertaking postgraduate research at PhD level.
