Is this programme for you?
The programme has been developed for those of you who are eager to broaden their knowledge and challenge their practice of Applied Project Management. You will normally have a first degree combined with a level of experience in a relevant context, having already proved yourself as a self- motivated team player capable of handling responsibility and communicating effectively with people at all levels.
The programme is designed to be flexible with evening or weekend lectures available as well as online support, including video recordings of all sessions.
- Programme Content and Delivery
Over the last decade, business and public sector organisations alike have increasingly opened their eyes to the strategic importance of effective project management teams and as such, the demands on project managers have increased. In order to keep up with these demands, and to enhance their career progression, project managers must ensure they keep up to date with leading-edge and best practice thinking.
Our Applied Project Management MA focuses on the real-life application of project management skills – not just academic theory – and encourages students to go back into the workplace to apply what they have learnt and report back.
Peer-to-peer networking is a crucial element of our Master’s programme. Students will study with like-minded business and project professionals to share best practice and experiences of working on real projects, and then participate in group discussions to brainstorm solutions.
