Course Description

Our online MSc Project Management recognises that every individual’s approach to management is personal and unique, and every manager handles the innate challenges of leading teams and projects in their own way. Consequently, we encourage and enable you to develop your own individual approach to managing projects, based on good management practices as well as specialist project management skills.
The course is ideal if you’re a graduate or professional looking to kickstart your career or enhance your existing project management experience. Your studies will take place entirely online, giving you the flexibility to advance your career around your other commitments. In addition to developing your own unique management style, you will also learn how to lead and manage projects and project teams effectively, as well as mastering a range of specialist project management principles, systems and techniques.
Project Managers are highly sought after in many industries and organisations, both nationally and internationally. We’ll provide you with the supported learning you need to develop the necessary knowledge, transferable skills and confidence to access these exciting career opportunities. Project Management skills are transferable across multiple industries, making graduates of this course highly desired by a wide range of organisations.

Course Content

You will develop a thorough understanding of the process of project management, together with the diverse range of resources and activities that the project manager must plan, co-ordinate and control to achieve a successful project. This module establishes a framework for the management of projects through a comprehensive understanding of the role and functions of project management throughout the project life cycle, from inception through all its stages to completion and use.
You will develop a systematic understanding of a number of key tools and techniques used in the management of projects, enabling you to critically evaluate project needs and to select and apply appropriate techniques for your project. With the demand for continuous improvement, production systems such as lean and agile will be explored as well as other performance improvement tools and techniques, including risk and risk management, to identify and manage risk throughout the project life cycle.
This module provides the opportunity for you to undertake a significant piece of independent research using appropriate, recognised methods. You will identify and pursue a topic relevant to project management that is of interest and in which you wish to develop a significant level of expertise. You’ll develop and refine the theme for the project together with your course tutor, who will support you during the research and writing process. This module is your opportunity to put your newly acquired skills and knowledge into practice and to showcase them to current and prospective employers.
