Course Description

About this course

Are you interested in gaining a Masters qualification that is highly valued by employers and applicable to a range of industries? This distance learning course will give you expertise in project management that is widely transferable.

Strong demand for project managers means the average salary for experienced professionals is £62,000 a year, or equivalent*.

The course covers topics such as how to assess project feasibility, how to manage risks in projects, how to keep people working together, and how to develop a portfolio of projects. The curriculum is aligned with the academic requirements of the Association for Project Management (APM), which is the UK’s largest professional body for project managers.

The distance learning mode of this course makes it very suitable for those who are already in employment as well as those looking to start a career in project management.

The course is also available through full-time and part-time modes, and with the option of an advanced practice element.

There’s no need to have completed previous studies in project management and we welcome applicants from a variety of academic backgrounds.
