Course description

Our courses will equip you with the understanding, knowledge and skills needed to work as a project manager in a variety of industries. Project management is a distinct professional discipline with its own body of knowledge, skills, tools and techniques. It involves managing a project from inception to completion and the attainment of the project’s objectives. In these courses, you will learn the processes and techniques associated with project management, including cost, time, quality, risk, communication, human resources and procurement management. You’ll explore the application of quality management to projects – including planning, assurance, certification, audits, control, training, benchmarking and best practice. You’ll also be trained in leadership, team management and motivation. The master degrees are divided into a professional stream and a research stream. The degrees comprise three levels of study, with completion of one level providing credit towards the next. You can choose to exit the degree at the graduate certificate or graduate diploma level. Students who complete a master degree to a high standard can apply for doctoral-level studies.

The future of Project Management

As methodologies such as Agile and Scrum are incorporated into general management, dictating the way work is managed, project management skills are increasingly sought across all industries. The accelerating adoption of automation technologies is also creating a demand for project managers to manage the outputs of these systems. In fact, the international Project Management Institute reports that by 2027, employers will need more than 87 million additional people in project management-oriented roles.
