Overview

Course Details

The Project Management postgraduate programme at the University of Northampton is designed to address the growing complexity of projects and incorporates key project management tools and techniques. You will gain an understanding of the core competencies required by project managers to drive projects to a successful conclusion, as well as an appreciation of using a more holistic, international and ethical stakeholder project management approach.

This course will support your career progression by developing your critical thinking and research skills in order to enhance your business knowledge and understanding. The MSc will teach you the theory of effective project management practice and equip you with the essential skills, confidence and competence to assist you when you venture into your chosen industry. You will learn to think laterally, challenge convention and offer knowledge-based solutions to business issues. You will be encouraged to think and operate in a different way which is an advantage that will set you apart from peers and colleagues in the business environment.

This course explores project management through a series of progressive modules, developing your knowledge from the fundamentals, through to modules addressing risk, resilience and contingency planning. You will also explore key issues facing project managers such as project finance and procurement, managing project teams, critical perspectives and social impact and responsibility.

This Project Management degree course also has the option of a 12-month industry placement. A project management industrial placement will give you the opportunity to develop your knowledge and skills in a real-world environment, while completing an applied research project. This will give you an advantage over the competition for jobs and scholarships after you graduate and could be a good starting point for setting up your own consultancy business.
