Delivered over one-year full time, the programme will allow you to enhance your knowledge of the project environment and equip you with the skills to become practising project professionals.
Accredited by the Association of Project Management (APM) and aligned to their 7th Body of Knowledge, you will study the place of projects within the broader context of programmes and portfolios and the governance structures that facilitate project delivery.

Students will apply their learning to the completion of a dissertation or case study analysis project.
On this course you will...

- Define and model appropriate project governance structures for a project.
- Understand the difference between project management and project leadership and model behaviours applicable to the situation at hand.
