About the Programme
The management of international projects poses unique challenges. This Master’s program outlines the knowledge, skills, and behaviors required to effectively manage projects spanning institutions, national boundaries, and cultural barriers. The program will analyse the influence on project management of culture, language differences, social, contractual, legal and regulatory traditions, technological exposure, temporal preference, gender issues, inequality, ethics, individual rights, and political contexts. We recognise how to meet the challenges of international projects through the effective use of techniques and procedures. The curriculum will use relevant case studies and examples from global organisations to help you sharpen the skills required to understand and promote a productive international project environment.
The Advanced Practice is a Compulsory aspect of this program, it takes place after you have completed the teaching modules at the Masters level and will require you to pursue a 15-week work placement or an applied consulting project, working with a real company on a live business problem. This offers you the ability to gain knowledge of the global environment and/or realistic awareness of the "real world" problems faced by those currently engaged in international project management.
Why study this Programme
You will discover how culture affects how teams view each other, organise, resolve issues, and conduct tasks. While the environment is constantly interconnected, the people behind the projects have prejudices, aspirations, and a view of life that influences all decisions. You will also understand how to properly manage international teams, including how to establish trust and collaboration across societies, time zone differences, and technology. In an international project management environment, you will learn how to create communication networks and project frameworks effectively
