Discover Lincoln Wherever You Are in the World


Today’s global businesses list project management skills as one of the most desirable when hiring new talent. MSc Project Management at the University of Lincoln provides an opportunity to engage with fundamental theories and best practices in a systematic, critical, and creative way.

Projects are now ubiquitous for businesses. They formalize the way in which organizations implement the constant improvements required to successfully operate in competitive markets and usually involve high risk and uncertainty. The historical legacy of project management is evident everywhere in the world. Everything that has been constructed, from the Egyptian pyramids and medieval cathedrals to skyscrapers and other prominent examples of contemporary infrastructure, was at some point a project.

Irrespective of current levels of project management knowledge or experience, students in this program have the opportunity to gain the confidence needed to plan complex projects, lead and inspire teams, manage difficult stakeholders, and cope with the most unpleasant or unexpected risks. They are able to develop practical skills relating to the design, planning, and execution of projects, in addition to conflict resolution and effective multi-functional project integration.

This course has been developed for both recent graduates and those seeking a change in their career path. It is therefore not restricted to students with a business-related background.

Prioritising Face-to-Face Teaching

At the University of Lincoln, we strive to ensure our students’ experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, we have adapted to Government guidance to keep our students, staff, and community safe. All remaining Covid-19 legal restrictions in England were lifted in February 2022 under the Government&rsquo's Plan for Living with Covid-19, and we have embraced a safe return to in-person teaching on campus. Where appropriate, face-to-face teaching is enhanced by the use of digital tools and technology and may be complemented by online opportunities where these support learning outcomes.

We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance make this necessary, and we will endeavor to keep current and prospective students informed.

Industry Expertise

Students on this program can benefit from working alongside an experienced team of staff consisting of academically and professionally qualified lecturers with relevant industrial experience and wide-ranging research interests.

The program has links with project management teams (PMOs) in the University&rsquo's Estates and ICT departments. It also invites practicing project managers and consultants as guest speakers and career advisors from the Association for Project Management, BBC, Export Development Canada, BAE Systems, Jacobs, and Siemens.

The School hosts a series of visiting speakers each year, enabling students to hear and learn from industry experts. Previous speakers have included representatives from organizations such as Deloitte, Santander, HSBC, Innocent, The Institute of Internal Auditors, and Sir David Tweedie (ex-Chairman of the IASB).
