When you successfully complete the program, you will have satisfied the education requirements necessary to apply to the Project Management Institute (PMI) for either the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) or the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification.
In just two semesters, you will learn the skills needed to move a project through conceptualization, initiation, planning, execution, control and closing. The curriculum is designed in collaboration with industry and closely aligned to PMI’s Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK).

Student ambassadors helped answer questions about the Project Management Postgraduate Program. There was a lot of interest in project management from prospects with many different backgrounds.
Experienced industry professionals came in to speak with the 2nd semester project management students through a series of roundtable rotations. Students were able to meet each project manager and ask them questions.
In 2013, PMI’s PM NETWORK magazine reported that the sectors to watch for project management hiring opportunities were technology, global infrastructure, energy, financial services and health care.
Also, in 2013, the Project Management Institute (PMI) stated, based on a study conducted by The Anderson Economic Group, that project based industries could be at risk due to the lack of skilled project managers. Between the years 2010 and 2020, an estimated 15.7 million new project management jobs will be added globally, reaching an economic impact of over $18 trillion across seven project intensive industries.
Whatever sector you want to work in, the demand for leaders and team members with project management skills is growing. Our program has been designed to help anyone, from the new graduate to the experienced professional, looking to acquire this highly regarded skill set.
