Applied Project Management MSc

Course summary


In recent years, there has been a growing awareness and appreciation for the use of project management techniques in a much wider range of business settings. This, in part, is due to increasing competition and a business imperative which recognises that to achieve competitive advantage, the efficiency and success of each and every project is vital.

This exciting new Masters in Applied Project Management contextualises the practice of project management within specific sectors and will give you the generic skills and competencies required to fulfil your business and organisational needs.

Why choose this course?

The practical approach to teaching and learning is enhanced through the three distinct pathways of Environment, Computing and Enterprise Management as well as a final dissertation that allows for even deeper focus on your chosen career sector.
