Course summary

Course Overview

Projects play a key role in many organisations, either because they are organised around projects or because they introduce change through projects. This programme will enable you to use project management tools and techniques, engage stakeholders, obtain systemic insights into projects and provides the opportunity to gain practical experience of managing projects in any industry.

As one of a small group of international students, our tutors get to know you as individuals through group work and contact time. All our tutors have varied industry experience, which influences the programme’s direction and demonstrates the transferability of project management skills between industries and sectors. You will also benefit from our connections with professional bodies including the Association of Project Management, which ensures the relevance and quality of the programme.

In your first term you will explore the principles of project management. You will apply tools and techniques through a simulation and get a better understanding of developing relationships with stakeholders. The second term builds on this knowledge and will give you the opportunity to apply your skills in a real project.

We will teach you how to investigate the new and how to navigate it. We will look at managing people from a psychological and sociological perspective, alternative management approaches like agile and provide you with systemic insights into the management of projects. We carefully balance academic perspective, experiential learning and practical application to advance your knowledge in the most effective way.

You can choose a desk-based dissertation or consultancy project with small and medium-sized enterprises. Past projects have ranged from construction to the MOBO Awards, and from process-based to technology-based.

Throughout the course you will work in a dynamic and international environment that will enable you to develop into a workplace-ready and reflective graduate. Our careers advisers will support you in creating a career plan and give you access to various career events per year.
