What will I learn?

This course will equip you with the understanding, knowledge and skills needed to work as a project manager in a variety of industries.

Project management is a distinct professional discipline with its own body of knowledge, skills, tools and techniques. It involves managing a project from inception to completion and the attainment of the project’s objectives.

In this course, you will learn the processes and techniques associated with project management, including cost, time, quality, risk, communication, human resources and procurement management.

You’ll explore the application of quality management to projects – including planning, assurance, certification, audits, control, training, benchmarking and best practice. You’ll also be trained in leadership, team management and motivation.

The master degree is divided into a professional stream and a research stream. The degree comprises three levels of study, with completion of one level providing credit towards the next. You can choose to exit the degree at the graduate certificate or graduate diploma level.

Professional recognition

This course is accredited by the Project Management Institute (PMI) and the Global Accreditation Center for Project Management Education Programs (GAC), and is endorsed by the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM).

In fact, the international Project Management Institute reports that by 2027, employers will need more than 87 million additional people in project management-oriented roles.
