Programme description

The professional project manager must deliver projects on schedule, on budget, to scope and with the right quality. The programme develops the multi-faceted skill set needed to manage international projects successfully. It is developed and delivered with the involvement of senior industry practitioners and is accredited by four prestigious international professional bodies.

International projects reach beyond national boundaries, in terms of project purpose or nationality of stakeholders. They all require professionals who arecapable of ensuring a seamless transition betweenlocal and global players in a variety of cultural andsocio-economic settings around the world.

Project management has emerged as a core ingredient of business success. Escalating global competition, price pressures and growing regulatory and legal risks are challenging organisations to perform at peak efficiency.

The value of a formal project management education builds a foundation for more effective and efficient practices and goes beyond merely learning a few project management tools and techniques in a short workshop. It creates both improved competence and confidence.

The programme provides a wealth of skills development in the areas of project management, development and project economics, construction management, risk and value management, and international project finance.

Career prospects

The demand for project professionals, especially those with project management education and training, is growing rapidly. Demand in many regions is exceeding supply, as more companies adopt a project management culture and project numbers continue to grow globally.

Aligning the programme to international project management accreditation standards tied to real-world learning outcomes allows graduates to progress directly to the assessment of professional competence in their chosen career path.

The globalised business and organisational environment is creating a growing need for project managers that can operate in a variety of cultural and socio-economic settings and are capable of handling the complexities that arise while working in an international context.

The programme provides students with a systematic understanding of project management and a critical awareness of current problems together with new insights.

Programme description

The benefits from international and global collaboration are numerous and the future of many enterprises and organisations could depend on how well they are managed in this context.

Project managers need to be prepared for the challenges involved with working in an international setting with people from an array of cultures. Good effective project management requires appropriately balanced combinations of explicit and tacit knowledge, professional practical experience and professional behaviour. This perspective stimulates adoption of a philosophy for the programme that is designed to engender an ethos of partnership between students, academia and industry.

In contrast to more traditional project management education, the programme focuses on providing our students with knowledge to work in an international environment. We work with themes like: leadership, communication and team building and motivation in international projects, as well as project management methods. Furthermore, we focus on how cultural, political, psychological and infrastructural aspects influence international projects. Working together with students from other parts of the world provides an opportunity to practise the theories during the study period.

Educational methods

The programme offers a mixture of conventional lectures and seminars, supported by online resources and a variety of external sources of information. It benefits greatly from the use of case studies, live projects and collaboration with practitioners. Student presentations, group work and case studies are important parts of the programme.
