From engineering to IT and from defence to finance, and almost every industry in between, project managers are in increasing demand.
Whether they’re ensuring the smooth management of a major urban infrastructure project, overseeing the delivery of a new mining development, bringing to life a new community health initiative, or implementing a cloud-based software system for a client, project managers are a vital ingredient when the working environment becomes complex.
A two-year, 100 per-cent online, part-time course, the Master of Project Management is endorsed by the Australian Institute of Project Management. It combines vital core units with industry-specific elective units, plus a powerful industry research project to create the ultimate project management experience.
Candidates take units focussing on principles, planning, quality control, risk, leadership, contract management and more. Elective units include accounting, business management, engineering management, health services management, information and knowledge management and people leadership.
Along the way, each student’s critical and analytical thinking processes will be developed, particularly in areas such as planning, implementation, collaboration and evaluation. This is important as successful project management is not just about practical application, but is also about considering, through critical thinking and reflection, which skills to apply.
Upon completion of the Master of Project Management, entirely new career opportunities open up. From the startup environment (in 2018 StartupAUS reported project management as one of the five most in-demand jobs, globally) to multinational corporations, talented, experienced and well-educated project managers are an essential ingredient for success.
