About PRINCE2® - Practitioner at Westminster Business School, London, University of Westminster

This accredited project management course follows on the PRINCE2® Foundation course and provides you with an understanding of how the method works in practice. The course completes covering the contents of Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2®, the official manual of the method, published by the Cabinet Office in 2017.

'Today, complex projects often involve several organisations working together in partnership or through contractual agreements to achieve the objectives. PRINCE2® provides a common language between organisations and with external suppliers. It also allows a focus on the Business Case, providing a mechanism to define what the project is trying to achieve, and the rationale and business justification for it.' (Cabinet Office's manual)

At the end of the course you will take a 2.5-hour multiple choice test, which leads to the sought-after PRINCE2® Practitioner certificate.

What students think about Westminster Business School, London, University of Westminster

    Vanessa De Silva, Management Consultant, Expertise Limited, Bermuda

    Testimonial from Vanessa De Silva, Management Consultant, Expertise Limited, Bermuda, student at Westminster Business School, London
    As an international student I was looking for a Master's program that would offer me an experience and education that I could utilise worldwide. The University of Westminster was a simple choice for me knowing the superior level of education, top quality professors and fabulous location offered. The culturally diverse group of classmates held various levels of professional experience which enriched my learning as we continued to develop and challenge each other.

    Having completed the MA Human Resource Management specialising in Employee Relations I have acquired an education which lead me to a fulfilling career rather than a short-term job. As a Management Consultant in an Employment Services firm I work with local and international clients and have continued to develop my practical experience in employee relations, policy development, recruitment and performance management.

    Andrew Behles, Trainee Chartered Accountant, Nexia Smith & Williamson

    Testimonial from Andrew Behles, Trainee Chartered Accountant, Nexia Smith & Williamson, student at Westminster Business School, London
    As a US national with relatively little experience in international accounting standards and practices prior to beginning the course, the WBS Msc in Finance and Accounting provided me with a useful blend of accounting theory and practice that has well equipped me for securing a job in international audit in the UK upon graduation. And with up to six exemptions from ACCA exams, its easy to see a quick and tangible return on investment.

    Owen Coughlan, RBS Global Banking & Markets

    Testimonial from Owen Coughlan, RBS Global Banking & Markets, student at Westminster Business School, London
