Program Description

Business Project Management MSc/PgDip/PgCert

University of Huddersfield Business School

This Business Project Management MSc program has been designed to offer you something unique from other courses specialising in project management. We provide a breadth of core management areas necessary to understand key issues in business and management. We then develop and enhance your knowledge, understanding and application of project management within a variety of project settings. Whilst theoretically robust with an emphasis on applied critical thinking and analysis, this course is grounded in real-world issues. Throughout the programme you will be exposed to real business problems and issues. The focus of this course is the development of the hands-on project managers of tomorrow.

The Business School is a Corporate Member of the Association for Project Management (APM) and there are additional opportunities to gain initial APM qualifications alongside the Master's programme.

This includes a project consultancy skills module and an extended business project in place of the academic dissertation.
