Project Management is ever-growing and evolving as it is an imperative function to improve efficiency and transparency in modern businesses. A project manager is responsible for the day-to-day management of specific projects that have definite outcomes, time limits, and set budgets. The role of the Project Manager is evolving from day-to-day activities but also requires inspirational leadership.

The Strategic Project Management with Industrial Placement  from Kent Business School is delivered by academic experts and co-developed with industry leaders. You will develop a detailed background of Project Management and strategic theory and the imperative tools and processes project managers use in the business environment.

Taking a 12-month industrial placement allows you to gain work experience in the UK or overseas as part of your Master's. While the placements are self-sought, the School offers support through extra-curricular engagement with our dedicated placements team. Opting for this course with a placement takes the length of your course to up to two years.


Our Project Management graduates find work in project management positions in varying business, in the form of consultancy, freelance and employed work both overseas and in the UK in a wide range of companies and organisations, including:

  • Deloitte 
  • Fujitsu Services Ltd
  • Huawei
  • BP
  • JP Morgan & Chase

Many of our students also stay local and find job opportunities regionally in small and medium firms or even set-up their own businesses as well-equipped entrepreneurs.
