Overview

As a result of globalisation, the application of new technologies, and an ever-changing economic environment, more and more organisations rely on project work, programs, and portfolios to conduct business. Project management methodologies can help standardise, structure, and organise work methods to achieve things on time, on budget, and to requirements.  

The Master of Project Management at UNSW Canberra provides students with the knowledge, skills, and tools to successfully deliver new products and services, perform change and transformation, and – in general – to help project teams get things done. With a strong emphasis on extending skills and knowledge with work experience, this program will prepare graduates to apply their high-level understanding to real-world problems within any industry.
