Course summary

Course overview

If you want to study a general project management master’s degree with an IT flavor, this is the course for you. It offers a range of project management skills useful in many subject areas, plus skills that are particularly useful in IT project management. You also study IT-related management skills within information systems and e-commerce.

There are two routes you can choose from to gain an MSc IT Project Management:

  • full-time - 2 years with advanced practice (September and January start)
  • full-time - 1 year (September start) or 16 months (January start)

This course develops your project management knowledge to a high level. You learn how to use PRINCE2 - a project management method used to manage, control and organise projects. You also learn about key principles of project management for a wider range of disciplines such as strategic project management and risk management. You integrate essential IT management topics around e-commerce and information systems management and develop enough technical and interpersonal skills to make an immediate contribution to major projects at the leading edge of IT management.

How you learn

Lectures introduce and develop material, and include research issues and recent developments as appropriate. You explore subjects in-depth through tutor-led seminars, practical workshops, individual or group research, and by contributing to discussion forums.

Lectures, discussion seminars and online discussions develop your intellectual skills. Many modules use directed self-study and research to develop your critical evaluation skills.

We use lectures, including presentations from guest external practitioners, deliver relevant subject-specific content. Practical work includes case studies from real scenarios.

Core themes throughout the course include developing your transferable skills, self-managed learning and professional development. Methods include group-based activities and discussions, self-directed learning and research, and tutor-led workshops.

How you are assessed

We assess most learning outcomes by individual coursework, including case studies and essays, with critical evaluation of processes or products, and evidence of research into a specified area. We are very experienced in assessing group work with a research profile in that area. Your assessment starts within a group, with a clear emphasis on process as well as product, but proceeds to your individual assessment by a variety of means.

You are also assessed through an individual portfolio of technical work to a professional standard and a presentation to tutors on your research findings.

From the beginning of your programme, we prepare you for a career in industry. In addition to your taught classes, we create opportunities for you to meet and network with our industry partners through events such as our Expo Series, which showcases student work to industry.
