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.
