The MSc in Major Programme Management is an intellectually rich, part-time programme informed by cutting-edge research and grounded in the best of international practice.
This specialised master’s degree combines the highest standards of academic rigour with a practical approach to managing large-scale, complex and transformational programmes, bringing together experienced programme managers to share their challenges and knowledge.
How do leaders face the uniquely complex challenges presented by planning and delivering major programmes? The MSc in Major Programme Management helps you develop the understanding, ability and confidence to address these challenges and manage programmes the scale of which can transform a company, a city, or even a country.
Designed for senior executives who may well have already undertaken a number of project management courses, this part-time programme awards a master’s degree from the University of Oxford whilst allowing participants to study alongside full-time employment.
Rigorous, selective and intellectually challenging, this part-time postgraduate degree programme consists of eight themed courses of four days each, studied in person at Oxford University’s Saïd Business School over 18 months. During these courses, students are expected to stay in or around Oxford. The courses are complemented by flexible study (reading, research, writing assignments) completed away from the business school. During the final six months of study you will write a 10,000-word dissertation on a subject of your choosing, so the total study period will be 24 months.
The MSc in Major Programme Management offers you:
- the skills and ability to be responsible for programmes amongst the most expensive, complex and transformational in the world;
- access to top-level teaching and research from world-leading experts including those from the business school and the wider university;
- membership of a unique network of peers and practitioners from around the globe;
- a postgraduate degree from the University of Oxford which builds on your existing professional development and experience; and
- lifelong association with the university through the business school, university networks and college membership.
The assessment regime for the core courses consists of 100% individual assignments (formal coursework) with a final dissertation of not more than 10,000 words. Assessment is performed at the end of each course. Students who fail to achieve the required standard have one opportunity to retake/resubmit the assessments. Students may be required to make regular presentations to teachers, and business practitioners.
Students are required to pass all of the core courses and the dissertation. The Gateway and Capstone courses are not presently assessed.
Please note that this course is paperless. This means that paper handouts will not be provided for most of your courses. All presentations will be uploaded to our virtual learning environment. For pedagogical reasons this may be in advance of, just before or immediately after teaching sessions. Handouts will be provided for certain courses based on specific requirements, eg unreliable internet availability or where handouts operate more like a textbook than slides.
