The projectification of society has resulted in a current and future demand for project professionals who can efficiently formulate strategies for the implementation of large, complex projects and programmes. These vary widely from non-governmental organisation (NGO) aid projects to multi-national sustainability programmes; from product development projects for sustainable competitive advantage to implementing strategic change under crisis; and from society-wide regeneration programmes to the implementation of industry specific projects.
The MSPME successfully addresses the strategic and holistic demands of modern projects in contemporary organisations by providing students with a systematic understanding of knowledge in an emerging field that combines:
- Project management as a process to deliver complex change; and
- Strategic management as a process for formulating and implementing organisational strategy
Over the period of study, students will develop knowledge to critically examine theoretical and practical perspectives, develop key employability skills such as teamwork and leadership, whilst developing competencies to facilitate business transformation, continuous improvement, organizational change, value creation and strategy implementation.
Successful graduates will be awarded a degree from each University.
