It is now widely recognised that sustainable development is very much related to the efficiency of the public sector and the effectiveness of senior and middle management of public sector institutions. This degree has been designed to meet the needs of people who are planning a career in project planning and management and who are(or hope to be) employed in the public, commercial or voluntary sector and working to ensure the viability of development activities.
The course is designed to deepen your understanding of the processes, strategies, techniques and issues involved as well as practical project management processes and issues.
The core curriculum is covered in three course units: - Project and Programme Management - Project Planning, Design and Appraisal - Project Management Skills
In addition, students have the opportunity in option course units to cover a range of associated development topics, which may be practical (project analysis) or policy-related (public policy analayis and management). Students also develop their research and writing skills in preparation for the submission of a 10,000 word dissertation at the end of the course on a subject of their choice.
Good Honours Degree. Relevant experience as a development professional or manager will be taken into account.
