Study type Taught


In recent years there has been a growing awareness and appreciation of the benefits of using project management techniques across a wide range of business settings. On this practical course you will examine the role of applied project management in specific sectors and discover how to plan, control, monitor and deliver successful projects.

The course will help you gain the generic skills and understanding that you need to fulfill your particular business and organisational needs. In addition, you will gain experience with supporting software such as Microsoft Project Management.

On this career-oriented applied project management course, you will learn how to use structured concepts and frameworks to tackle unstructured, complex real-world scenarios. You can expect to see core theories reflected and tested in your case studies and in-course assessments.

The course is divided into three parts. This will help to develop your skills in general project management as well as more subject-specific practice areas.

The three parts are:

  1. Four core modules covering contemporary project management and its relation to other areas of a business or organisation:

Principles of Project Management Strategic Portfolio Management Team Dynamics and Leadership Project Finance and Marketing. 2. A choice of one specialist module to focus on either Computing (Consultancy and Technical Innovation module) OR Enterprise Management (Managing Innovation and Change).

  1. The Research Methods module and Dissertation OR, if you are doing an internship, you will take the Employability Skills and Employment module and its related dissertation.

If you are an international student you also will need to take the Learning and Professional Development module, which focuses on transferable skills including presentation and problem solving.

You can also take this course with a six-month internship in the UK. This option will add a practical dimension to your studies and help you to understand the demands of workplace supervision and management.

You will be assigned a personal tutor for this period. Your dissertation subject will be related to your internship.

*As we are in unprecedented and unpredictable times, there is no guarantee that you will be successful in securing a placement in the UK in the future.

If you choose a course with placement/internship route we would like to advise you that if a placement/internship opportunity does not arise when you are expected to undertake the placement then the University will automatically transfer you to the non-internship route. This is to ensure you are still successful in being awarded a degree.

The internship route for this course is open to UK students only
