Project Management Specilization

Awake the Business Leader in You with our MBA Degree programs

Program Aim

The Project Management specialization is an essential aspect of conducting business. Project Management teaches you how to be responsible for projects and strategies within an organisation. Students will learn how to plan, meet deadlines, manage budgets, and achieve the objectives set by the company. Future project managers will develop their skills and knowledge during classes like Leadership, Project Management Tools, Commercial Economics, Risk and Value, Decision Making, Accounting for Projects, Resource Management, Business Ethics, Information Systems, etc.

One of the most important skills you will learn during a Project Management degree is risk management. It focuses on discovering all possible liabilities and difficulties that may occur during the project. It is then up to students to find the best solutions to avoid these obstacles and make sure the project progresses at a steady pace without exceeding the allocated budget and resources.

Other key aspects of Project Management are discovering and arguing their effectiveness, defining the requirements and resources needed, receiving approval, monitoring the progress, and implementing feedback from other stakeholders.

Students who graduate with degrees in Project Management find job opportunities as project coordinators, project analysts, industrial production managers, administrative managers, and quality experts.

Every step of a project involves a high level of focus, analytical skills, as well as the ability to communicate and make big decisions. Project managers also need to have good communication skills, so they can coordinate work and delegate tasks to different team members. This is not a job for everybody, but if you have the resilience and determination to see a project through to the end, you should consider a career in Project Management.
