The Strategic Project Management at Heriot-Watt University Dubai differentiates itself from other project management programmes by putting a greater emphasis on the strategic requirement in managing a portfolio of projects to deliver organisational goals.

In this way, Strategic Project Management encompasses both project management as a process to deliver end products and change management as a process to capture the rational and emotional buy-in of the people affected by change to ensure its success. A postgraduate qualification in Strategic Project Management can benefit individuals in business, engineering, IT or science whose job involves managing or directing work that has a strategic focus and a defined end goal.

This Strategic Project Management at Heriot-Watt University Dubai reflects the content of the Project Management Institute’s Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge.


Graduates who have achieved this degree over the past eight years have reported a significant impact on their career development.

Graduates may also progress to portfolio management, event management and change management roles.

For MSc entry, a good relevant Honours degree (first or second class) or equivalent overseas qualifications will be considered. Given the clear practical element of the programmes, we will also consider non-graduate candidates holding less than a good Honours degree, or its equivalent, but with compensating qualifications or experience may be admitted to the Postgraduate Diploma programme. Transfer to the MSc will be possible later on if exams and course work are at MSc level.
