ABOUT

Take your first step to becoming a project management professional and join one of the world’s fastest growing professions. Develop a well-rounded set of project and general management skills. Undertake a professional placement and put your new skills into practice.

Overview

This MSc Project Management course is designed to teach people from any discipline or degree background, unlike other project management courses. Whether you are from a business, arts or technical background this course is for you.

The course has been designed in line with the requirements of both the Project Management Institute (PMI) and the Association for Project Management (APM).

The taught modules ensure you develop a well-rounded set of project and general management skills. In addition, you’ll be provided with the opportunity to undertake a professional placement (subject to availability) and put your skills into practice, enhancing your employability. You’ll have the chance to find your own placements or to develop professional practice projects, working alongside our industry links through the Institute for Automotive and Manufacturing Advanced Practice (AMAP) and the Sustainable Advanced Manufacturing (SAM) project.

Course structure

Teaching methods include lectures, seminars, class discussions, case studies, a project management business game, group work, presentations and applied study. You’ll also have the opportunity to undertake a placement and develop your professional skills, working on a real-world project or in a commercial, professional or industrial environment. 

Your progress will be assessed with individual written reports and research papers, practical assignments and finally your masters dissertation. The course has no assessment by examination. The professional practice/placement element will be assessed by a portfolio of evidence gathered during your work, regular logs of your progress and a final presentation or video.

Compared to an undergraduate course, you will find that this Masters course requires a higher level of independent reading and research.
