Project Management

Are you interested in gaining a Masters qualification that is highly valued by employers and applicable to a range of industries? This course will give you project management skills that are widely transferable. Strong demand for project managers means the average salary for experienced professionals is £62,000 a year, or equivalent*. The course covers topics such as how to assess project feasibility, how to manage risks in projects, how to keep people working together, and how to develop a portfolio of projects. The curriculum is aligned with the academic requirements of the Association for Project Management (APM), which is the UK's largest professional body for project managers. The course is also available through part-time and distance learning modes, and with the option of an advanced practice element. There's no need to have completed previous studies in project management and we welcome applicants from a variety of academic backgrounds. *Telegraph.co.uk 2015
