Programme description

The professional project manager must deliver projects on schedule, on budget, to scope and with the right quality. The programme develops the multi-faceted skill set needed to manage international projects successfully. It is developed and delivered with the involvement of senior industry practitioners and is accredited by four prestigious international professional bodies.

International projects reach beyond national boundaries, in terms of project purpose or nationality of stakeholders. They all require professionals who arecapable of ensuring a seamless transition betweenlocal and global players in a variety of cultural andsocio-economic settings around the world.

Project management has emerged as a core ingredient of business success. Escalating global competition, price pressures and growing regulatory and legal risks are challenging organisations to perform at peak efficiency.

The value of a formal project management education builds a foundation for more effective and efficient practices and goes beyond merely learning a few project management tools and techniques in a short workshop. It creates both improved competence and confidence.

The programme provides a wealth of skills development in the areas of project management, development and project economics, construction management, risk and value management, and international project finance.

Career prospects

The demand for project professionals, especially those with project management education and training, is growing rapidly. Demand in many regions is exceeding supply, as more companies adopt a project management culture and project numbers continue to grow globally.

Aligning the programme to international project management accreditation standards tied to real-world learning outcomes allows graduates to progress directly to the assessment of professional competence in their chosen career path.
