According to the HRM Recruitment 2018 report, project management is listed among the professions experiencing a skills shortage, meaning now is the best time to start studying the subject. Defined by the Project Management Institute (PMI®) as a temporary endeavour undertaken to create a unique product, service or result, being able to run a project is an excellent skill to have.

In order to be successful in a project management role, you will need to be able to build collaborative relationships through results-oriented management. However, what separates project management from just ‘management’ is that you will need to know how to deliver a goal within a finite timespan and budget. Management, by contrast is an ongoing process.

Throughout this programme, you will learn how to take a project through the stages of initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling and finally, closedown.
