Our two masters degrees provide a pathway to success in their own competitive markets.
MSc Project Management

International industries, firms, organisations and governments across the world demand exceptional candidates who have the knowledge base and practical skills to finance, manage and execute processes and projects successfully. In recent years, both small and large businesses have become project-based, and as technological developments are matched with new products and processes, markets become ever more competitive and complex.
This course will provide you with:

In recent years, businesses of all sizes, across all major industry sectors have become project based, with projects often spanning different companies, regions and time zones and integrating diverse knowledge bases and disciplines.
