Course content

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 methodsThe 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.
