The Course

The MSc Project Management degree at Lincoln provides an opportunity to engage with fundamental theories and best practices in a systematic, critical and at the same time creative way. Today’s global businesses list project management skills as some of the most desirable when hiring new talent.

Projects are ubiquitous nowadays, formalising the way in which companies organise and implement the constant improvements required to successfully operate in competitive markets and usually involving high risk and uncertainty. The historical legacy of project management is evident everywhere in the world. Everything that was constructed, starting with the Egyptian pyramids through medieval cathedrals to skyscrapers and other prominent examples of contemporary infrastructure, was at some point a project.

Irrespective of your current level of project management knowledge or experience, you will have the chance to gain more confidence to better plan complex projects, lead and inspire your team, manage difficult stakeholders and cope with the most unpleasant or unexpected risks. You will also have the opportunity to develop practical skills relating to design, planning and execution of projects, in addition to conflict resolution and effective multi-functional project integration.

The Project Management MSc has been developed both for recent graduates and those seeking a change in their career path. The programme is therefore not restricted to students with a business related background.

How You Study

The comprehensive and intellectually challenging curriculum is informed by professional best practice and is designed to meet the expectations of contemporary global organisations. The curriculum covers a range of project and programme management knowledge from effective methods of project initiation, planning and execution to close-out. The overall aim is to optimally balance the acquisition of both hard and soft skills.

This balance is reflected in the programme structure which spans from team leadership and decision analysis to methods of planning, executing, monitoring and controlling projects under uncertainty and risks.

The programme consists of seven core modules and one option, and concludes with a dissertation. The dissertation is designed to encourage innovation and diverse pathways to the final assessed product. In this respect, the dissertation is an extended project that can accommodate a range of independent work.

Modules

Core modules:

  • Decision Analysis for Managers
  • Delivering Projects, Programmes and Portfolios
  • Finance and Accounting
  • Project and Contract Risk Management
  • Project Planning and Management
  • Research Methods and Design
  • Teams and Leadership

Optional modules will run as far as minimum student numbers are met. Timetabling arrangements may limit the availability of modules to some students. As the options reflect staff research interests, they may alter over time due to staff availability.

How You Are Assessed

The Project Management MSc is designed to help you develop a unique mix of hard and soft project management skills, emphasising the pivotal role of communication and negotiation – not only to grow professionally as a manager, but also personally as a leader and influencer.A variety of assessment methods are utilised during this course, including reports, tests, oral presentations, portfolios and practical projects. These assessments are designed to develop the skills that will be useful for your career.

There is a focus on action learning as well as immediate practical application of any learned skill or technique, which helps students to critically appraise various solutions to a real-life problem and make a robust managerial decision.
