“Within just six months of starting my studies, I'm already seeing the benefits in my working life. The course has a real research focus and I can apply the learning to my industry.

MODULES & LEARNING

Project management might be said to be problem solving. Innovation then becomes the problem solving tool of the project manager. Seen as a key value adding tool, this topic is examined in detail. Parallels are drawn between the entrepreneur and the Project Manager's role.

Managing several projects in a coordinated way to successfully implement a strategy is typically referred to as 'Programme Management'. Many project managers will have more than one project to deliver. Understanding the advantageous of coordination, performance monitoring and benefits management will enhance all your projects and equip you to oversee and enhance the delivery of a group of them.

To understand, translate, and evaluate the strategic environment and understand its impact on project and programme delivery.

You will examine and analyse the strategy process and the nature of strategy. You will also consider the application and failure of strategy in organisations, and the role of programme and project management in this. Research Methods (20 Credits) Dissertation (40 Credits)

An opportunity to engage in research or advanced scholarship in a subject area that is appropriate to the course and is of particular interest to you.

An opportunity to look at the latest issues in the development and delivery of projects, while also building your ability to predict what may occur in the future.

Understand the theory and science of human behaviour to enable you to better facilitate optimum and rational decision making in strategy and projects.

Extensive links with industry have been created through the course's activities. The course runs popular conferences led by students work, and an international project management conference in association with Wuerzburg Fachhochschule University and the Association for Project Management's 'Inspire' project.

The Centre for Project Management has a UK wide presence, attracting students of project management from across the country. You will have the opportunity to publish papers in local and international conferences hosted by masters students. A research-led approach means that in addition to research developed by staff and students on the course, each individual will have many opportunities to investigate areas of particular interest and relevance.

If you feel that full-time study may be difficult given your other commitments, we offer two options to study part-time that continue to prove extremely popular with professionals from up and down the country. You can study 12 Sundays a year for two years as part of our full day workshops or, alternatively, you can study on weekday evenings on a more regular basis.
