Programme Overview

The MSc in Programme and Project Management has been designed by one of the UK’s leading Operations Management research groups. Our research work has attracted funding from one of the leading professional project management bodies, the PMI. The programme has been designed for graduates seeking to develop a career in project and programme management, a field which is gaining strong strategic importance in organisations, businesses and governments. In today’s complex global business environment, effective project management skills are in great demand and this programme is an exciting specialist postgraduate opportunity for graduates that wish to enter a discipline which is in high demand. 

The programme provides a theoretical and practical exposition of project management knowledge, necessary for leading and managing complex projects in today’s global and highly competitive markets. In addition, the programme demonstrates the contemporary methods and tools that successful project managers use to lead, deliver and deal with complexities and uncertainties associated with the global nature of projects and the cultural diversity of contemporary project organisations. 

The programme has a strong contemporary business focus reflected in the programme structure and modules which span from strategic leadership to methods of planning, executing, monitoring and controlling programmes and projects within uncertain and complex environments.

The programme is enhanced with a final MSc project with a practical and action based focus to direct and test the knowledge gained during the taught elements of the programme through application in a project management environment.

In addition this programme offers:

  • Opportunities for additional qualifications in SAP and Prince2 are also available.
  • Networking with industry experts, through guest lectures providing expertise and advice for students.
  • Opportunity for students to apply their newly acquired knowledge in project management through a three-month MSc project which may involve a placement within an industrial partner or could be research based.
