The Programme Leader together with a team of multi-disciplinary academics have designed this course with the needs of modern professional project managers in mind. This postgraduate degree course will enable you to explore project management in a wide range of contexts including long-run public sector infrastructure projects and short-to-medium term projects in private sector businesses, public sector organisations and third sector (not-for-profit) organisations.
The course focuses on practical advanced concepts, processes and techniques required to manage projects within today’s complex and constantly changing knowledge and innovation-driven business environment. The course content is balanced, with critical modules on research, leadership, law, innovation, change management and an understanding of the global project management environment.
