Our aim is to develop tomorrow's project management leaders in the construction industry.
Project managers lead and co-ordinate increasingly global, fast-moving and complex construction projects. We develop a coherent framework for the discipline and practice of project leadership and management.
The project leadership role requires strategic thinking, sound knowledge of project management tools and techniques, and strong interpersonal skills to motivate diverse team members (often across geographic and organisational boundaries) towards project success. The distinctive focus is on the strategic management of projects, programmes and portfolios.
This programme is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).
