It is intended to provide students with advanced technical and methodological training and quality in the theoretical and practical aspects that are applicable in the field of project management and therefore help the update of professionals in this field, as well as also enhance their specialization.

Credit transfer and recognition:
Recognition of credits: consists of the acceptance by a university of the credits that were obtained in an official education, in the same or in another university, and that are computed in other different teachings for the purposes of obtaining an official degree.
Transfer of credits: implies that in the official academic documents accrediting the successive teachings for each student, the totality of the credits obtained in official teachings taken previously, in the same or in another university, that have not led to the obtaining of an official title.SaidasIt should be noted that currently we are witnessing a growing professional demand for training in project management in the different productive and service sectors (construction, manufacturing, IT, R&D, development aid, etc.). Demand that, to date, does not have an energetic response from the University System, except in regions such as Catalonia, the Valencian Community or Madrid (areas in which, on the other hand, degrees in project management are their own degrees), so this proposal it would serve to place the Universities of Galicia in the same term as the most advanced, in this field, of the State.
The justification for the need to offer a professional postgraduate degree in project management is given by the high demand for expert professionals in project management that is currently taking place. On a daily basis you can see in the written press, national and European, abundant job advertisements with names such as "project manager", "program manager", "project manager", "project manager" or directly (even in Spain), “programmanager” or “project manager”.
There is therefore a clear demand for this type of professional. The need for the existence of a professional who can perform horizontal and vertical integration for the management of all the resources available in the project requires a high level of prior learning, as well as specific theoretical-practical knowledge for this professional.
