About this course

Project Management is the application of appropriate management strategies in order to effectively coordinate the realisation of complex and dynamic projects. The applied skills and competencies of a project manager are necessary for the successful completion of large and complex projects, particularly within the ever-changing marketplace.

This postgraduate programme is aimed at those seeking to acquire the management skills required to progress towards senior management positions. These skills include knowledge and understanding of communication, organisation and marketing concepts: both at a strategic level and in people / project team management within an international context. The discipline and practice of project management therefore provides exciting challenges and fresh opportunities for management practitioners from a variety of professional backgrounds.

This programme provides the opportunity to study in two European Union member states with students from all over the world, thereby enjoying a distinctly international flavour. The programme comprises three taught semesters and a fourth semester for the dissertation (2 academic years of full-time study). The first two semesters are spent at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden and starts in August / September. The third semester is spent at Northumbria. The fourth semester is dedicated to your dissertation, which can be completed either in the UK or in Sweden. The total length of the programme is two academic years. The whole programme is taught in English.

On completion, the successful graduate will receive the Masters International Project Management award from Chalmers University of Technology and the MSc Project Management award from Northumbria University. The completion of a study programme that itself crosses borders has proved to be a perfect prerequisite for international project management careers.

The Project Management Dissertation module, which can be studied at either Northumbria University or Chalmers University of Technology, builds upon the concepts and theories presented during the Applied Research Methods module. The module requires students to further develop, consolidate and apply research skills that are expected from a postgraduate student when investigating a relevant issue. Students are required to undertake a piece of analytical, reflective academic research that results in the production of an original 20,000-word Masters dissertation relevant to the core philosophy of the dual award programme.

The assessment of the learning outcomes of individual modules reflects the varying subject-related needs of those modules, and focuses upon the relationship between theory and professional practice. The dual award programme consists of 180 Level 7 (or equivalent) credit points of taught modules and 60 Level 7 credit points from the Project Management Dissertation module. The taught modules are assessed by a combination of examinations, assignments, time-constrained assignments and presentations.

This is an ideal international postgraduate programme for graduates who want to progress within project-based industries. It is ideally suited to relatively new graduates with restricted work experience and also highly experienced practitioners. The programme may be followed to enhance existing career opportunities within many industrial sectors; as preparation for transfer from one industrial sector to another; or as preparation for further postgraduate study, i.e. Ph.D. Demand for managers who can demonstrate the skills to effectively management projects, particularly international projects which cross borders, continues to grow both nationally and internationally. Indeed, opportunities for a varied, well-paid, challenging and international career are significant.

See the website https://www.northumbria.ac.uk/study-at-northumbria/courses/project-management-chalmers-dual-award-msc-ft-dtfpmc6/

Admissions procedures normally include an interview for home students. As the Programme is dual award in nature, applicants are required to apply to both institutions.Full details of the Chalmers University of Technology Masters programme and admissions procedure are outlined at: http://www.chalmers.se/en/education/programmes/masters-info/Pages/International-Project-Management.aspx

Facilities

As a student at Northumbria you will benefit from extensive open access facilities which are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week during term time. Computing, group working and library facilities are supplemented by specialist postgraduate working spaces to ensure you can always find what you need to complete your studies.

About this course

Project management is an exciting and effective management strategy which presents challenging opportunities to the ambitious construction management professional. The applied skills and competencies of a construction project manager are necessary for the successful completion of complex construction projects, particularly within the ever-changing context of the construction industry.

This course is aimed at those looking for the management skills required to progress towards senior management positions within construction-related organisations, particularly internationally-driven contracting companies. These skills include knowledge and understanding of communication, organisation and innovative construction practice and concepts, both at a strategic level and in international construction project team management.

This course provides the opportunity to study in the UK and France, combining a university experience with a unique work-based programme. The course commences each September and consists of one semester of full-time study at Northumbria University, followed by a 12-month combined work training programme at L’École d'Ingénieurs du CESI in Nanterre, Paris / graduate employment with a relevant construction-related employer in France.

The first semester at Northumbria consists of taught modules in English, while the year-long programme at EI.CESI includes taught modules in French, work experience in a French organisation, and the completion of a professional practice thesis. Your thesis will be supervised by both Northumbria and CESI staff, with close mentoring from the organisation with which you will be working. Students seeking international careers either in the UK, France or across the world with supporting employers gain a distinct advantage from this course. Whilst some of the course is taught in English there is the requirement for students to have a good working knowledge of French.

The assessment of the learning outcomes of individual modules reflects the varying subject-related needs of those modules, and focuses upon the relationship between theory and professional practice. The dual award programme consists of 180 Level 7 (or equivalent) credit points of taught modules and 60 Level 7 credit points from the Professional Practice Thesis module. The taught modules are assessed by a combination of examinations, assignments, reports, time-constrained assignments and presentations.

The Professional Practice Thesis module builds upon the concepts and theories taught at Northumbria during the Applied Research Methods module. The module requires students to further develop, consolidate and apply research skills that are expected from a postgraduate student when investigating a relevant issue. Students are required to undertake a piece of analytical, reflective academic research that results in the production of an original 15,000-word Masters dissertation relevant to the core philosophy of the dual award programme and related to construction professional practice.

This is an ideal international postgraduate course for graduates who want to progress within the project-based construction industry. It is suitable for relatively new graduates with restricted construction-related work experience and also highly experienced construction-related practitioners. The course can enhance existing career opportunities within the construction industry or act as preparation for further postgraduate study, i.e. PhD. Demand for construction project managers who can demonstrate the skills to effectively manage construction projects, particularly international projects, continues to grow both nationally and internationally. Indeed, opportunities for a varied, well-paid, challenging and international career in construction project management are significant.

See the website https://www.ntu.ac.uk/study-and-courses/courses/find-your-course/business/pg/2017-18/international-business-dual-award

Study tour

The study tour takes place each year, all students have the opportunity to take part. The cost of the trip is covered by your tuition fees, and all students will be provided with help and support in applying for the necessary visas.

The destination and style of the trip varies each year, but previous destinations have included Lisbon, Brescia and Venice. 

While abroad you will have the chance to take part in a number of activities, including industry visits, networking opportunities, attending lectures and seminars at a summer school, and of course some sight-seeing. The trip is also normally linked to your consultancy project, giving you the opportunity to meet the organisation you are working for, and present your ideas directly back to them.

The trip has proven itself to be a key factor in the success of the programme, with students benefiting from the business and cultural aspects of it. Some students have also been successful in securing internships with organisations involved.

Study and support

Teaching and learning methods are centred around interactive workshops which are highly participative in nature and will employ case studies, discussions, business simulations and group activities.

Interactivity is key to our teaching and we are committed to providing courses that adopt teaching methods that are appropriate to the student cohort and the specific modules.

We ensure that support and guidance is in place, especially during the early stages of the course and assessment periods, to help you become comfortable with operating in a student-centred learning environment.

Assessment methods

A range of assessment methods are used across the course, the choice of which reflects the needs and demands of the different types of module. Some modules will assess the ability to work collaboratively in a team and others will assess individual capability. Types of assessment will range from examinations to group presentations including essays, reports, financial analyses, literature reviews and research-based projects.

The interactive nature of the taught sessions offers opportunities to gain feedback on your performance before being formally assessed and increasing use is made of eLearning to further support the feedback process.

Induction

All our courses begin with a comprehensive development programme that will help you prepare for your studies and develop key academic and transferable skills. A key feature is a short residential team-building course, normally in the Peak District.

You will also have opportunities to meet members of the teaching team and other postgraduate students, receive detailed programme information, and gain valuable support and guidance from the library, careers service, international office and Student Support Services.
