What will I learn?
Students will learn about management of projects via real-life examples, as well as having the opportunity to develop and test their own knowledge and skills via a wide variety of projects.
A blend of concrete skills, theoretical grounding, and best practices designed to train students for effective planning, organisation, and execution in the project context.
A thorough acquisition of essential interpersonal, leadership, stakeholder management, and problem-solving skills via group and case based learning, presentations, simulation exercises, and real-life projects to deliver services and products.
The acquisition and development of vital presentational, communication, and reporting skills and analytical techniques.
How will I benefit?
The curriculum has been devised to either kick-start graduates at the beginning of their career or accelerate the trajectory of those already working in practice.
- The course favours an academically-grounded hands-on experience, enabling students to experience the reality of management of projects and the skills and knowledge required in all kinds of organisational contexts.
- Students gain first-hand insight into how to communicate with stakeholders at all levels, and master the organisational and human issues involved in managing projects.
- A springboard to employment by a range of prestigious companies, including Accenture, Microsoft, PwC and Vodafone, promotion, or changes in career paths.
The curriculum is built around a theoretical and practical grounding in management of projects and is taught via a cluster of core modules and a Major project.
The course content and teaching approach draws upon for example the Project Management Institute (PMI) Body of Knowledge.
