MPM Master of Project Management


Aims of the MPM program



To educate students on the many different aspects of project management and provide them with the tools and training to deal with complexity and a wide range of problems as they arise.

Have students recognise the importance of organisation, self-control, communication, leadership, teamwork and values with a major emphasis on learning by doing.

Students will be encouraged to become leaders in their field and to continue to push the boundaries of our knowledge.

A multi-faceted approach and diverse mix of students will encourage insights from business, science, engineering, sociology, economics, psychology, philosophy, mathematics and history.

The MPM program is comprised of 90 ECTS credits and the teaching is split into 4 semesters over 2 years.  In the chosen modules the importance of the technical, behavioural and contextual elements of project management is emphasised and there is also much emphasis placed on the participation of students in practical teaching classes.  Group work sessions and action-based problems are used to focus on a range of realistic and virtual problems, and there is flexibility to allow students to look into problems from their own work environment and to reflect on them in a communal setting.
