This course aims to equip you with both theory and practical skills in the management of projects, project portfolios and large scale programmes. These skills are critically important to a range of careers in business, for students who intend to be project managers as well as those who will work as part of a project team.

The course will examine the key phases of the project management cycle and describe the various tools and methods used in each of those phases. The course will consider both theoretical and practical perspectives and equip you with the necessary skills to be able to better manage or participate in projects.

There will be a very strong emphasis on research-led teaching and critical analysis of the literature, textbook recommendations and their use in practice. Also as part of the course, students will research a set of key emerging, topical issues in project management. Through this, the course also aims to further develop your communication skills and group-work skills, improve your time management and enhance your research skills.
