It encourages an evidentiary and interdisciplinary approach to critical thinking and problem solving, strengthened by a capacity to undertake research. You will choose from a range of discipline-specific electives (covering IT, Business, Engineering and Law) and have the opportunity to work on real-life projects where theory and practice are applied to problems situated in local and international, corporate, government and social contexts. Where will a career in project management take you? As a graduate you will be strongly placed to provide strategic project leadership in a wide range of settings, such as business delivery, IT developments, engineering solutions, in both the corporate, government and not-for-profit sectors.
