Our MSc Project Management is designed to address the growing complexity of projects and incorporates key project management tools and techniques. You will gain an understanding of the core competencies required by project managers to drive projects to a successful conclusion, as well as an appreciation of using a more holistic, international and ethical stakeholder project management approach.
This course will support your career progression by developing your critical thinking and research skills in order to enhance your business knowledge and understanding. The MSc will teach you the theory of effective project management practice and equip you with the essential skills, confidence and competence to assist you when you venture into your chosen industry. You will learn to think laterally, challenge convention and offer knowledge-based solutions to business issues. You will be encouraged to think and operate in a different way which is an advantage that will set you apart from peers and colleagues in the business environment.
This course explores project management through a series of progressive modules, developing your knowledge from the fundamentals, through to modules addressing risk, resilience and contingency planning. You will also explore key issues facing project managers such as project finance and procurement, managing project teams, critical perspectives and social impact and responsibility.
The final stage of the course will include a Project Management consultancy project or Project Management Dissertation. The consultancy project will allow you to undertake a project in one of a number of different industries and will address the varied aspects of project or programme management. You can choose to complete the Project Management Dissertation instead of the consultancy project, which will allow you to explore and critically review literature about issues related to a particular aspect of project management in your chosen area.
