International Project Management is a career path that is available in many industries and sectors due to its versatility. Many businesses provide international services or liaise with clients from all around the world, and it is important to accommodate for differing approaches in different countries.
Project management skills provide the ability to handle and lead projects in an efficient and effective manner in both online and physical business environments. In addition, international business introduces varying organisational and cultural differences that you may not have previously known, so being aware of and able to manage this brings about a competitive advantage.
According to research commissioned by the Association for Project Management in 2019, Project Management in the UK generates an estimate of £156.5 billion revenue, with the demand exceeding the available skilled workers (PWC, 2019). This is where we come in.
The MSc International Project Management degree is a popular postgraduate programme choice for students at the Northumbria University London Campus. Not only does it provide multi-sector, transferable skills but it also creates a world of opportunities for educational development and career progression.
Across the year-long programme, students will gain invaluable knowledge across varying modules including: Strategic Management, People Management and Project Implementation – aimed to provide the necessary skills needed within this industry.
Postgraduate study is always an advantage and – due to the lack of skilled workers in this field – International Project Management is a beneficial course to have on your CV.
If chosen with the Advanced Practice study option, students have the choice of an internship or applied group consultancy project to complement their studies. Through this study option, students can gain real-life, practical experience designed to further enhance their employability upon completion of the degree.
The average UK salary for Project Management professionals in 2020 is £47,500, with an average starting salary of £27,500 with the potential for progression (APM Salary and Market Trends Survey 2020). The MSc International Project Management degree is an advantageous addition to any CV, making this salary expectation more attainable.
