Advanced Project Management (960N1)

15 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

Spring teaching

In this module, you study project management at an advanced level. You go beyond the traditional 'planning and control' approach to project management and look at significant uncertainities, unexpected environmental and market changes, leadership challenges and hidden agendas.

You will learn:

  • the limitations of the traditional approach to project management
  • to consider broader factors in project management, such as organisational, behavioural and political-economic factors, which may affect project performance. 

It is expected that you will already have a basic knowledge of project management.
