This Master's degree in Project Management from the University of the Basque Country gives access to the doctoral programmes.


Project management is a discipline applied in many aspects of professional life. However, academic training rarely includes a project-based perspective for the organisation of work. 

This can lead to uncertainties, in the day-to-day work, about the best ways to deal with the problems arising in the projects and in their integration with the organisations: planning, control and project phases; change and risk management; communication and conflict management; safety and environment, etc.

In the European Master's in Project Management programme from the University of the Basque Country, you will acquire adequate theoretical knowledge for enhancing your development of advanced scientific knowledge on project management, in order to address the challenges that emerge in the scope of work organisation.
