What will I study?
Our part-time MSc Project Management course is taught at our London Campus by our experienced academics and expert practitioners.
This MSc in Project Management will focus on developing your competence as a well-rounded project or programme leader alongside the wider leadership and management skills required to succeed in any organisation or sector.
Key study areas include risk and value management, project economics, project strategies, sustainable project management, and partnership and collaboration. You will develop your knowledge within the context of project environments, highlighting the importance of people and project teams in achieving success. Live industry projects play a key role and have involved clients such as Volvo, Airbus, Balfour Beatty, the NHS and Google.
How will I be taught and assessed?
This part-time programme is designed to allow you to fit your studies around your busy schedule and as such this work related award is delivered across 18 weekends over a two year period. It is also designed to allow you to relate your assessments back to your workplace, projects and programmes you are familiar or organisations in which you aspire to work. The programme is assessed through modular assignments and a final dissertation, with one examination.
Overall, the programme uses a combination of teaching and learning materials and techniques including:
- Workshops delivered at weekends to enable face to face learning and interaction with fellow learners and tutors.
- Self-study materials, providing knowledge and understanding, and helping you to apply ideas to your workplace.
- Work-related assignments that give you an opportunity to develop and demonstrate your knowledge and understanding and provide evidence of competence.
- Face to face or on-line tutorials where required to support your learning.
We offer extensive student support in and outside of the classroom with a dedicated student support team based in London.
