Course content

This postgraduate course is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills to give you a competitive advantage in Project Management.

You will develop your expertise in areas such as entrepreneurship, project management, risk management, leadership and human resource management, all of which are important tools for a successful project manager. You will have the opportunity to work as a member of a project management team and be involved in developing a project plan that is presented to real clients for feedback and, potentially, deliver the plan for them as a live project.

You will be taught by senior academics who have wealth of professional experience and excellent links with industry. Their teaching is informed by insights from industry and the course content is both practical and relevant to real business life. You will also be offered an internship option to provide you with a flavour of the actual world of business.

The internship

An optional internship (up to 6 months in duration) is available to all students, taking place on completion of the taught modules. This internship will not be credit-rated but will allow the student to gain first-hand experience within a real business environment to enhance their future employability. Students may also choose to make use of this opportunity to base their Research Project on a business-related issue arising during the internship. There may be possibilities, with the employer’s permission, to gain access to research participants and primary data, and to apply their understanding of theories and principles discussed within their programme to a live organisational setting.

Securing the internship is the responsibility of the students to arrange and is not necessarily paid. Students who request the internship option will need to secure this by a specified deadline. If the deadline isn't met, the course will revert to the route without internship.
