Overview

Professional project managers are in significant demand in the UK and internationally. In the current environment, agile project managers have been able to escalate and transform projects faster than before, such as with COVID-19 vaccine delivery. The Programme Leader together with a team of multi-disciplinary academics have designed this course with the needs of modern professional project managers in mind. This postgraduate degree will enable you to explore project management in a wide range of contexts, including long-run public sector infrastructure projects and short-to-mediumterm projects in private sector businesses, public sector organisations and not-for-profit organisations.

The degree content is balanced, with critical modules on research, leadership, law, innovation, change management and an understanding of the global project management environment. The degree has a practical emphasis rather than an overtly academic or theoretical approach, it is pivotal because the project management function is required to deliver hard and measurable results.
