Project Management

UCL-wide; versions for 3rd / 4th year under-graduate, Masters and Doctoral students.

Project management is used in both public and private sector organisations to bring about change and manage innovation. Students will invariably be involved in projects in their future careers, and will need to know how to use the tools and techniques of project administration and also understand the environment in which their project is being undertaken - the organisation(s) involved, customers, politics, power, people and how to get the best from them. Our course aims to introduce students to the range of issues that affect projects, the tools and techniques needed to manage them, and to help students to develop the skills, knowledge, attributes and behaviours that the project manager needs.
