Managing projects to the agreed scope, time, budget and quality requirements is essential to industry. This course looks at this in terms of projects within a programme environment in order to maximise the benefits from the project. You will gain knowledge in relation to best practice in project scope management and baseline establishment and management.
The University Certificate in Project Scope Baseline Management has been designed around established bodies of knowledge from the Association for Project Management (APM) and the Project Management Institute (PMI). The curriculum specifically maps onto the syllabus for the APM Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ) and the APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) and incorporates the guidance from APM on Project Planning and Control and the Office of Government and Commerce/Axelos Guidance on Managing Successful Programmes ©.
The content of the course is vocational and applied in nature but there is no specific requirement for a work-placement. Opportunities to engage with industry through guest lectures and case studies will feature strongly in the programme to ensure that students who do not have access to an appropriate employment opportunity can gain experience and contextual knowledge.
The course can lead to a career in project management or project controls.
