In the Practice module we concentrate more on the behavioural aspects of projects, such as leadership and team work. The two modules together provide a critical overview of the project management world.

The other core modules discuss other aspects of project management such as risk management, scheduling, project finance, strategic alignment and procurement. To complete their studies, all students complete a practical or a research project.
