Project Management Degree

A project management degree is usually taken at the postgraduate study level in the form of a Master’s degree. A postgraduate degree in project management can take anywhere between one and three years depending on the study mode chosen. Most institutions give students the choice of studying project management full time, part time and online.

Alternatively, undergraduate degrees take around three years of full time study to complete, and combine project management with another subject. It is common for project management degrees to be taken as part of a construction degree.  

Throughout a postgraduate degree program in project management students will study modules such as risk planning, purchasing management, portfolio management, executive controlling, team management and operations management.

Most institutions offering postgraduate project management degrees will expect students to have previous work experience in the field and educational qualifications, including a bachelor’s degree or equivalent. If you are an international student other requirements will apply such as a minimum score for IELTS if English is not your first language. You may also be required to provide a written letter of intent to support your application.
Almost all graduates from project management gain graduate jobs as a project manager within the construction industry. However, students can obtain different project management roles within other industries such as marketing and IT. Popular job titles include senior project manager, program manager, project coordinator, planning engineer, construction manager, and operations director.
