The Master of Project Management course is structured around project management methodologies and their effective application in real-world situations. Emphasising critical thinking skills and leadership qualities, this course will ready you for employment as a project manager.
Along with core units covering the fundamentals of project management, this postgraduate course allows you to select an elective area of study, and requires that you undertake an industry research project. This combination of broad-based knowledge and discipline-specific skills will allow you to follow your own personal career trajectory and use the course to your best advantage.
Aligned with the Project Management Institute's (PMI) PMBOK® Guide, completion of this program may allow you to claim Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points with your accrediting body.
Delivered online by SCU Online, this course allows students to enjoy a flexible study schedule that works around your commitments to ensure you get the most out of your degree.
